I had no trouble finding my customary 50 cones to tap, and they produced 30 spiders and 3-4 species as well as numerous pseudoscorpions and two species of harvestmen. But which spider species, exactly? I don't know! If my recent Seattle samples had me feeling a little more confident in my ability to identify spiders, the present sample has reminded me that I still have a steep learning curve ahead of me. Fortunately Rod is happy to sit down with me later and work through some IDs.
