|Sample site location|
|Fallen cone and litter microhabitats|
The cones here were mostly well opened. From 50 cones I tapped 9 spiders from 5 species. Half of the specimens were microspiders TBD. "The usuals", Phrurotimpus alarius (Phrurolithidae) and Neon nellii (Salticidae) were also present. The litter was thin, made up mostly of oak leaves, but it was rich in spiders: 30 specimens from at least 5 species.
