Among the spiders collected in marsh vegetation were 2 males of Carorita paludosa and 1403 specimens of Allomengea vidua. The former, known only from 2 sites (Ireland and England), is very rare; the latter Holarctic species, is rare but very abundant locally. Barber traps in groups of 3 were placed at several stations in the marsh vegetation. Trap contents were collected every 2 wk from July 30, 1977-Nov. 6, 1977. Specimens (2156) belonging to 29 spp. were captured. The great majority were Linyphiida (83%); Antistea elegans (Agelenidae) accounted for 15% of the capture. The 2 male specimens of C. paludosa were captured in Sept. and Oct. 1977, in traps placed 50 cm from the banks of a polluted stream; this station is unshaded but is flooded annually.
