Abstract

Four species of Argyrodes occur in Kansas: A. trigonum, A. cancellatus, A. elevatus, and A. pluto. The first two species occur throughout the eastern United States, whereas the latter two have a more restricted, southern distribution. Members of this genus may occupy the webs of larger spiders, and function as commensals, kleptoparasites, or predators of the host.
