Abstract
The personal history of forgotten Japanese arachnologist, Kyukichi Kishida (1888–1968) is described for the first time based on information collected from the literature and through interviews with the late Prof. Seikichi Kishida (1931–2002), the fourth son of K. Kishida. A complete list of Kishida's works on spiders is provided. Much confusion resulted from the species and higher taxa descriptions or species designations made by Kishida. In many cases he first proposed a new name for an undescribed species found but left its description to his followers. Therefore, some species were really described by another person, while many nomina nuda were produced. A revision of each taxon with systematical and nomenclatural problems will be given in forthcoming parts of this serial (in preparation).
