Additions to the Revised Checklist of the Spiders (Araneae) of British Columbia

R. C. West, C. D. Dondale, R. A. Ring


This list forms an addendum to "A Revised Checklist of the Spiders (Araneae) of British Columbia" by West et al. (1984), J. Entomol. Soc. Brit. Columbia 81: 80-90. It adheres to the same sequence and format of presentation as its antecedent, thus only the additional infonnation will be presented. The list contains 137 new species for B.C., and includes one new species for North America, Lesserria denlichelis (Simon) (family Erigonidae) and one new
family for B.C., Nesticidae containing the single species Neslicus silveslrii Fage.

The main specimen collectors were Mr. Donald J. Buckle, Dr. Robert T. Holmberg, Mr. Malcolm Martin and the first author, R. West. The authors wish to thank Mr. J.H. Redner for identifications and the addition of species represented in the Canadian National Collection.
