COVER Tetragnatha kauaiensis, one of a large radiation of long-jawed spiders (Tetragnathidae) endemic to the Hawaiian Islands. One group of species, which includes T. kauaiensis, has abandoned the web-building behavior characteristic of the genus and has diversified into ecologically similar sets of species on different islands, as described on page 356.
