Abstract

Apparatus and auxillary equipment for the forcible silking of spiders are described and illustrated. These facilitate the identification of the glandular sources of the fibers, allow for their localized isolation on a wind-up mandrel, and make possible their removal as continuous lengths or toroidal bundles for further study. Detailed descriptions are given for preferred techniques.
