Seven newly recorded species and families of spiders from Reunion Island (Malagasy region) (Araneae, Araneomorphae)

Jacquot M., Derepas B., Deguine J.P.. 2016. Bulletin de la Société Entomologique de France, 121 (4) : p. 421-430.

To date, 24 spider families have been identified on Reunion Island. But published data on spider fauna mainly concerned natural habitats and highlands. Studies of predatory arthropods in agroecosystems provided the opportunity to conduct a thorough investigation of spider diversity. Seven species and families of spiders are newly recorded for Reunion Island: Creugas gulosus Thorell, 1878 (Corinnidae), Oedignatha scrobiculata Thorell, 1881 (Liocranidae), Ero aphana (Walckenaer, 1802) (Mimetidae), Palicanus caudatus Thorell, 1897 (Miturgidae), Oecobius marathaus Tikader, 1962 (Oecobiidae) and Orthobula impressa Simon, 1897 (Phrurolithidae) and Tropizodium peregrinum Jocqué & Churchill, 2005 (Zodariidae).
