CATALOGUE OF SALTICIDAE (ARANEAE)
synthesis of quotations in the world literature since 1940, with basic taxonomic data since 1758
[Version October, 2004 - in preparation]
This is the current version of the Catalogue compiled since 1986 from various Catalogues and original publications. The original idea was continuation of the Bibliographia Araneorum by P. Bonnet, which contains literature data until 1939, with quotation of basic older references (species descriptions, revisions etc). Under influence of Catalogues by N.I. Platnick, and previous Catalogues by C. F. Roewer and P. M. Brignoli, I adapted form similar to these Catalogues. The present Catalogue was prepared owing to kind assistance of a number of peoples and several Institutions, described in the 1990 printed edition. The special thanks are due to Dr. N. I. Platnick, who has allowed me to compare consecutive version with his volumes of "Advances in Spider Taxonomy". This went so far that the present 2004 version is being checked with Platnick's "Advance ..." Internet version 2004 (without separate acknowledgment at the species level) line after line, and contributed to significant increase of scientific accuracy of the present Catalogue. However, my individual coding of publications (2003a, 2003b, etc) is being retained, as well different taxonomic interpretations, and my own selection of new publications. Dr. W. P. Maddison has very kindly placed the previous version of the Catalogue in his Internet home page since 1995, he gave me also very useful advices and example how to convert Catalogue from its original Xywrite version into hypertext. Data from the 2004 version onwards are used in my pararallel "Global Species Database of Salticidae (Araneae)", synonyms generated automatically by that database will be in turn used here in due course. I wish to express my sincere thanks to all peoples and Institutions for help in preparation of this Catalogue.
