This paper is an attempt to determine, from a detailed
study of the epigyna and palps of a large number of specimens,
the true status of the four forms of this genus found in Ohio.
This research was conducted in the Department of Zoology,
The Ohio State University. The author wishes to acknowledge
his indebtedness to Dr. W. M. Barrows, of the Department of
Zoology and Entomology, for the advice and criticism given
during the course of this study.


Very clear and well-written thesis.

Contains reference drawings and descriptions for four Agelenopsis sp., along with some interesting tidbits regarding specimen preparation and preservation.
