Prey classification by an araneophagic ant-like jumping spider (Araneae: Salticidae)
(WILEY-BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, INC, 2009)
What to attack is one of the most basic decisions predators must make, and these decisions are reliant upon the predator's sensory and cognitive capacity. Active choice of spiders as preferred prey, or araneophagy, has ...
Fine tuning of vision-based prey-choice decisions by a predator that targets malaria vectors
(AMER ARACHNOLOGICAL SOC, 2012)
Innate aversion to ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae) and ant mimics: experimental findings from mantises (Mantodea)
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2006)
Field data suggest that ants may be important predators of mantises which, in turn, may be important predators of jumping spiders (Salticidae). Using a tropical fauna from the Philippines as a case study, the reactions of ...
Out of the frying pan and into the fire: a novel trade-off for Batesian mimics
A mimicry system was investigated in which the models were ants (Formicidae) and both the mimics and the predators were jumping spiders (Salticidae). By using motionless lures in simultaneous-presentation prey-choice tests, ...
Compound mimicry and trading predators by the males of sexually dimorphic Batesian mimics
(ROYAL SOCIETY, 2006)
Sexual dimorphism is pronounced in Myrmarachne, a large genus of ant-like jumping spiders (Salticidae) and one of the major animal groups in which Batesian mimicry of ants has evolved. Although adult females and juveniles ...
