From the introduction:
"The Department of Zoological Survey of India was established in the year 1916 at Calcutta, and more than sixty years have passed but unfortunately so far no separate fauna of Calcutta of any group of animal has been prepared. Therefore, we have taken this project to work out the spider fauna of Calcutta and vicinity. Although spiders are extremely abundant throughout the city and its vicinity, our knowledge is extremely fragmentary. We have started to undertake trips for spider collection in the city of Calcutta and the neighbouring places within a radius of 40 kilometres and crossing the Hooghly River, mainly Botanical garden areas, Sibpore, Dist. Howrah, West Bengal. The collection of spiders was made by using a sweep net or inverting an umbrella underneath flowering shoots or bushes and thoroughly shaking the shoots or bushes. Collected spiders were preserved in 75% alcohol."
