Since joining iNaturalist, I’ve obtained an interest in… spiders! However, I can’t really identify most of them right now, aside from basic things such as “It’s a Jumping spider” and some specific genera and species that I think I am at least somewhat familiar with.
Unfortunately, I can’t seem to find the distinguishing characteristics of spider genera and families on the internet, so if anyone has some helpful links, please do share! For genera, I’m particularly interested in genera of the families Salticidae and Theridiidae.
Yes, I am aware that some genera or families may be impossible to differentiate without some equipment such as microscopes or extremely careful and detailed examination, but I’d like to know the differences anyway!
