The following revised checklist, as probably with most regional checklists, is preliminary and hopefully will be useful for environmental management and planning as well as a starting point for further biological studies of the regional fauna. Citations refer to papers with descriptions, locality information, or nomenclatural notes. The author is extremely grateful for past input and welcomes any further comments, additional records and, especially, corrections. Classification follows Platnick 1997. Families are arranged alphabetically within the mygalomorphs and araneomorphs to permit more efficient access to a particular taxon by those unfamiliar with spider taxonomy. This list shows 53 families, 183 genera, and 442 species.
