Unique swimming gait of a water spider in Malaysia

G. W. H. DAVISON

Abstract


The fully diving habit of an aquatic spider, presumed to be Heteropoda sp. (Sparassidae), is noted in Peninsular Malaysia. Its swimming gait differs greatly from the world’s only known fully aquatic spider Argyroneta aquatica, and from that described for other spiders that venture into water.
