Female Scale (Fig. 82) — Is a golden brown with a decided ridge

appear on the margin to the first segment, and other spines follow as shown
in the figure. There are few tubular spinnerets, in many forms not any show-

circumgenital glands are all run together in most specimens and it is hard to
draw a distinction between the lateral and median group. The approximate
