Spiders and More at the Grand Case Cemetery Pond

In a third post about my last visit to the Grand Case cemetery pond I’m featuring the invertebrates that I encountered there, mostly spiders. I’ve been increasingly interested in spiders, especially since receiving the book The Spiders and Their Relatives of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, which was sent to me by one of the authors, Mark de Silva. I’m not sure how one acquires the book normally, but it is excellent. In addition to being surely the only guide of its type for those islands, it is a very good overview of spiders in general. Below are photos of the five or six species of spider I encountered near the cemetery pond, plus a few insects for good measure.
