Abstract

A new type of stridulatory organ is described and figured occurring in three species of Mallinella Strand from Thailand and Singapore. In one species there are four stridulatory organs, with the ridges on femora I and II and the pegs in the shape of granulations on femora II and III. In both the other species an additional pair occurs, with ridges on femora III and pegs on femora IV. To date no more than four stridulatory organs have been recorded on a single spider. Examples of various known forms of stridulatory organs on spiders are illustrated and their significance briefly discussed.
