About this book

Language: English

60 Cypriot Spiders is the first book ever published on the spider fauna of Cyprus. From the great number of spider species inhabiting the island the author has selected those spiders that are more likely to be met in the field, garden or house, including the most extraordinary and the most venomous species!

60 Cypriot Spiders has two distinct parts. Firstly it introduces the reader to a range of fascinating facts about the habits of certain spiders while linking their stories to broader tales in the world of arachnology. Here you will discover those species that have captivated people for centuries; spiders like the Tarantula, the Black Widow and the Recluse, all Cypriot residents.

The second part of 60 Cypriot Spiders is a practical guide to identifying the common species, detailing size, habitat, range and season for each spider. Here are featured beautiful colour portraits for each species taken by some of the most experienced and celebrated nature photographers on the island and abroad. Drawings by the author illustrate spider anatomy, a range of web structures, and mating habits.

“This book is set to become the first step towards creating a basis for the knowledge and understanding of spiders in Cyprus. After reading it, I don’t see how anyone could fail to see spiders in a new light.”
- Paul Hillyard, former curator of spiders at the Natural History Museum of London
