BRITISH SPIDERS AND THEIR DISTRIBUTION 
7
Early records are often doubtful, due to the recognition at a later 
date that two species have been confused in one (
e.g. Ero furcata 
prior 
to 1912, 
Aranea triguttata 
prior to 1909, 
Episinus truncatus 
prior to 
1906, etc.). All records of 
Porrhommae 
are doubtful up to the time of 
A. R. Jackson's survey of the genus in 1912. Records of 
Tibellus 
oblongus 
prior to 1911 may refer to 
T
.
 oblongus 
or 
T
.
 parallelus
.
Records of 
T
.
 oblongus 
between 1911 and 1938 refer to 
T
.
 parallelus
,
and of 
T
.
 maritimus 
to 
T
.
 oblongus
.
Records of 
Clubiona holosericea 
de G. up to the present time refer to 
C
.
 phragmitis 
and not to C. 
holosericea 
Linn. Records of 
Linyphia montana 
Clerck up to the 
present time refer to 
L
.
 resupina domestica 
de G., whilst 
L
.
triangularis 
Clerck becomes 
L
.
 montana 
Linn. 
Faulty identifications there must be and authors' subsequent 
corrections are easily overlooked. Amongst English records those of 
Tegenaria pagana 
and 
Theridion pulchellum 
refer to 
Tegenaria 
domestica 
and 
Theridion vittatum 
respectively. The true 
T
.
 pulchellum 
has lately been discovered in Berkshire (teste A. R. Jackson). Irish 
records of 
Lophocarenum stramineum 
refer to 
T
.
 nemorale
.
Up to 
1924 Scots records of 
Oedothorax fuscus 
and 
Oe
.
 retusus 
were 
interchanged. 
Our list of species from the British Isles (excluding sub species) 
now comprises 556, excluding the Channel Islands where 7 additional 
species are known (see p. 10). The totals of the four countries are: 
England 534, Wales 318, Scotland 327, Ireland (including Northern 
Ireland) 318. Of the English counties, Rutland (24) and Monmouth 
(29) are least known, followed by Leicester, Bedford, Hunts. and 
Northants, all with fewer than 100 species. Dorset, thanks to O. P. 
Cambridge's intensive collecting, leads comfortably with 396 species, 
followed by Yorkshire, Staffs., Northumberland, Sussex and Hants., 
which all exceed 300. In Wales, Carmarthen is least known with 37 
species; in Ireland, Longford and Tyrone with less than a dozen 
apiece. Wigtown is the only county in the British
