Well I was able to identify the Striped Bark Scorpion, or the tree climbing scorpion as some call it, and also some of the spiders I have seen. However, the most spectacular spider I have ever seen in Texas was not in this book. Once I saw a large black and yellow striped spider with a very elongated body and long legs, about 80-120mm across. It is clear it must have been a type of Longjawed orb weaver but that is all I know. It looked almost exactly like an African orb weaver but that can't be.
This book has 32 pages of pictures, but I think it needs about 100-150 pages of pictures to be really useful. Since the book contained information on scorpions, whip scorpions, pseudo scorpions, harvestmen, and ticks, I also think it should have included information on chiggers; they are after all a very noticeable arachnid in Texas.
Even though I wished the book had more pictures and a larger selection of species, especially common species, the book contains a lot of very interesting information and is difficult to put down. One of the many things I learned from this book is that even though some people call harvestmen "daddy long-legs" there are also "daddy long-leg spiders" and they are spiders not harvestmen. The two critters look a little bit alike but are not even in the same order (harvestmen are not spiders). In summary, a good and interesting book, but it needs more pictures and a little bit more content.
