An important work. Pt. 1 (pp. 1-27) treats fully upon the structure of spiders; pt. 2 (pp. 27-58) on their life, habits, and economy; pt. 3 (pp. 58-88) on the geographical distribution of those indigenous to Switzerland. The remainder of the work is occupied by descriptions of species. The number of known Swiss spiders is 435: Orbitelarice 54 Retitelariae 92 Tubitelariae 126 Territelariae 1, Thomisidae 54, Lycosidae 53, Attidae 55. These are divided among 7 families and 77 genera. The genera most numerously represented are Epeira, 30 species, Linyphia 24, Theridium (including Phyllonethis, Nesticus, Asagena, Steatoda, and Lithyphantes) 21, Erigone 20, Tegenaria 13, Drassus (and Drassodes) 18, Pythonissa 9, Amaurobius 8, Clubiona 19, Thomisus (including Thomisus, Diaea, Xysticus, Misumena, and Oxyptila) 34, Philodromus 12, Lycosa (iucluding Aulonia, Tarentula, Trochosa, and Lycosa) 43, Heliophanus 12, Attus 14. l6 species are described as new, and belong to the Epeiridae, Theridiidae, Agelenidae, Drassidae, Lycosidae, and Salticidae. The plates contain some excellent, and highly-magnified, details of structure, especially of the male palpi of somo of the species; the various parts of the male palpal organs, and female genital aperture, are also figured in detail. A list is added (pp. 314 & 315) of 25 species of Swiss Opiliones (Phalangidea) and 8 species of Chernetidae (Pseudo-scorpiones).
