Abstract

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.
