7. In Fig. 7 a the 'receptor' is in contact with the silk in the lumen of the gland; in this section, the segment of the lumen in which the receptor occurs is closed off from the main part of the lumen, while in the next section (not shown) it is clearly open (PEAKALL, 1968a). The appearance of the receptor is very different from the normal epithelium. The epithelium takes up a good deal of the dye hematoxylin, whereas the receptor is largely stained with eosin. The receptor has a somewhat striated appearance.

1962) we tested the working hypothesis that a heavier spider has to build a thicker thread in order to hold its own weight. If the thread becomes thicker, with a limited amount of material being available, it necessarily becomes shorter. Therefore the body weight of spiders was increased by about 30%; thread length, web weight, and web pattern were compared before and after the addition of weights. Increasing weight of spiders. Eight Araneus diadematus and five Araneus sericatus were used in the weight experiments.

19). Each animal is weighed and the volume of drug solution (or suspension) of known concentration adjusted, with the help of a Hamilton microsyringe, so that an animal receives the desired dose with an accuracy of better than 10%. The spider is held while it drinks in order to insure digestion of all the fluids. However, it is possible that the animals later regurgitate some of the solution, particularly that of high concentrations with strong taste. If injections are performed, it is important to keep the volume as well as the injection needle as small as possible.
