Collecting Spiders in Armenia

Just returned from a productive collecting effort in Armenia. When you need lots of specimens of the same species, temperate habitats are often better than tropical habitats. In the tropics we find plenty of specimens, but but it’s hard to find many of the same species without investing considerable effort. At high elevations in Armenia, Aculepeira talishia is abundant and clustered into communal flocks.
