Provisional Checklist to the Spiders of Ohio

We are constantly learning more about what spiders live in Ohio.  The list posted here includes 656 species.  Periodically I will post updates to this list including taxonomic changes, as well as newly discovered additions to the Ohio spider fauna.  There are likely many species of inconspicuous spiders that have yet to be discovered here.  They live their lives hidden from our view, active at night, living in wild places, high in the trees, or just “under our feet”  under rocks, among fallen leaves, or under debris on the ground.
