Wolf spider family of spiders

Wolf spiders are members of the family Lycosidae, from the Ancient Greek word "λύκος" meaning "wolf". They are robust and agile hunters with excellent eyesight. They live mostly in solitude and hunt alone, and do not spin webs. Some are opportunistic hunters pouncing upon prey as they find it or even chasing it over short distances. Some wait for passing prey in or near the mouth of a burrow.

Nursery web spider spider family

Nursery web spiders are spiders of the family Pisauridae. They resemble wolf spiders, but they carry their egg sacs by means of their jaws and pedipalps. When the eggs are about to hatch, a mother spider builds a nursery "tent", puts her egg sac inside, and mounts guard outside. The name "nursery web spider" is especially given to the European species Pisaura mirabilis, but the family also includes fishing spiders and raft spiders.

Liocranidae family of arachnids

Liocranidae is a family of araneomorph spiders, consisting of about 160 species of wandering spiders in 30 or so genera. Along with other groups, they are sometimes called "sac spiders". The best known are those in the Holarctic genus Agroeca. Various genera of rather obscure spiders are included in the family, which still lacks a diagnosis. Two species in the North American genus Neoanagraphis are found in often hyperarid conditions in the Mojave, Sonoran and Chihuahuan Deserts. The females apparently live in animal burrows and the males wander and are often caught in pitfall traps.

Corinnidae family of arachnids

Corinnidae is a family of araneomorph spiders, sometimes called corinnid sac spiders. The family, like other "clubionoid" families, has a confusing taxonomic history. Once it was a part of the large catch-all taxon Clubionidae, now very much smaller. The original members of the family are apparently similar only in that they have eight eyes arranged in two rows, conical anterior spinnerets that touch and are generally wandering predators that build silken retreats, or sacs, usually on plant terminals, between leaves, under bark or under rocks.

Pacullidae is a family of araneomorph spiders. It was merged into Tetrablemmidae by Brignoli in 1973 and by Lehtinen in 1981. In 2016, a large phylogenetic study proposed reviving the family. As of May 2018, the family is accepted by the World Spider Catalog.
