Prof. Draney has paper that describes new species of spider from the Everglades
UW-Green Bay Prof. Michael L. Draney (Natural & Applied Sciences) has published a paper in the journal Arachnology describing a new species of spider from the Everglades National Park in Florida. The spider is from a family not native to the United States, and was probably introduced from the Mediterranean region by human activity. The paper is a collaboration with a Zodariid expert from the University of Ghent, Belgium, and the spider is named after a colleague of Draney’s who collected the specimens. Bosmans, R. and M. L.
