Abstract

A pitfall trap survey was conducted in Wichita County of north-central Texas for one year. A total of 4072 spiders were collected, representing 22 families. Of the total spiders collected, 62% were mature with males outnumbering the females by a ratio of 4 to1. The members of the Gnaphosidae were the dominant cursorial spider, consisting of 16.2% of the spider total. This family included 267 males and 144 females that represented 26 species and 11 genera. Seven new species records were noted for Wichita County and included the following: Callilepis imbecilla (Keyserling), Cesonia bilineata (Hentz), Drassyllus aprilinus (Banks), D. gynosaphes Chamberlin, Synaphosus paludis Chamberlin and Gertsch, Tachyzelotes lyonneti (Audouin), and Zelotes lasulanus Chamberlin.
