This is an authoritative checklist that aims (pretty much successfully) to list every species of spider ever recorded from California, along with synonyms, range (given in terms of counties) and citations of references in the taxonomic literature. It won't tell you how to identify any spiders, nor will it tell you anything beyond classification and range of species- but it will tell you the names and synonyms of species in a given county so you can look them up elsewhere.

I emailed Steve Lew, who says they're having some serious server problems at the hosting site. It may be a while before this list is available again.

 
Yes,
Site's been broken for a little while now. I sent an e-mail to him on Aug. 8th. That list sure is handy... I've been missing it.

 
Back up -
this web site is working again today. Hopefully it will stay that way...
