Abstract

The holotype and only known specimen of Juraraneus rasnitsyni Eskov, 1984, the first spider to be described from Jurassic strata, is redescribed and re-illustrated using modern photographic techniques. Juraraneus is shown to be a cribellate araneoid, and thus forms part of the cribellate stem-group orbweavers which pre-dated the ecribellate araneoids found today.
