Darko Cotoras, originally from Santiago de Chile, is a Humboldt postdoctoral fellow from the Senckenberg Museum and research associate at the California Academy of Sciences. He is visiting the Arnedo lab to generate Scanning Electron Microscopy and optical stacking images for a taxonomic revision of the genus Selkirkiella (Theridiidae). These spiders are endemic to the temperate rainforests of southern Chile and Argentina, as well as the Juan Fernández Archipelago. #arachnology #arnedolab #spiders #theridiidae #science #ub #taxonomy

Jagoba Malumbres Olarte is a former visitor of the Arnedo Lab who has been collaborating with the group for a long time. He is an ecologist working mainly on spiders, and his research focuses on understanding the eco-evolutionary processes behind community assembly, as well as on performing, analysing and redefining spider inventories. Apart from that, he is also a scientific illustrator, and he is currently the co-director of our PhD student Marc Domènech. #arachnology #science #spider #ecology #ibercoding #biodiversity

Albert Sevil is an undergrad student doing his bachelor’s project in the Arnedo Lab. His work aims at revealing the diversity of spiders in the Sant Llorenç del Munt natural park. He has already identified more than 2,000 specimens, including a species recorded for the first time in the Iberian Peninsula. The spiders were collected with the COBRA sampling protocol in two different types of forests, which will allow to test the differences in diversity between different habitats. #arnedolab #science #ub #irbio #arachnology #spider #taxonomy #santllorençdelmunt

Sabrina is a MSc student at the Arnedo Lab. She already conducted her bachelor’s project in the group, using linear morphometrics to test character displacement in Dysdera spiders from the Canary Islands. For her MSc thesis, she will perform similar analyses but focusing on the diversification of the Laminacauda sheet weavers endemic to Juan Fernández islands, off the coast of Chile. #arnedolab #science #arachnology #ub #irbio #spider #dysdera #canarias #evolution

Second round of spider fridays with interesting findings like Eratigena atrica (the palp in the picture), Araneus pallidus, Amaurobius similis and even a new record for the Iberian Peninsula 😮 #arachnology #spiderfriday #ub #irbio #spider #taxonomy #arnedolab

Spider Fridays are back with more identification sessions! Today, some common species (like Linyphia triangularis, Agroeca inopina, Saitis barbipes or Drapetisca socialis) and a few enigmatic linyphiids 😮🕷️ #arachnology #ub #arnedolab #irbio #spiders #taxonomy
