    This thread is for links that may be helpful when trying to identify spiders. If you have any additional links, please post them replies, and I'll add them to this list. (I'm only linking to BugGuide articles. I'm not going to post links to BugGuide nodes, because there are a lot of them, and you can easily look them up.)
