Description of Cave-inhahiting Theridion, Theridion troglodytes, male and female specimens.
The specimens were obtained from a recently discovered
cave in the Chudleigh district on the property of Mr.
Peckitt, who most liberally allowed Mr. Frederick Henry, of
Launceston, to select, for our examination, specimens, not
only of the Arachnidae but also of the Mammalian remains
deposited in the fissures of the rock and embedded in the
earthy floor of the cave.
