Note on species names:
Currently, all spiders are categorized into about 114 families with more than 46,000 species worldwide. However, this number is only one third or one half of the estimated total number of different species! Constant research discovers new species on a daily basis and the known species are often renamed or associated with different families.
Although all currently known spider are identified by a “scientific” name, i.e. a Latin denomination, only a fraction thereof have a “common name" in English or any other language. All spiders described here in this app have at least one common name, most of them are listed by with synonyms and their common name in Spanish, too.
