LinEpig: To participate

Completing LinEpig will require the participation of a number of other linyphiid-rich collections.

In creating LinEpig, The Field Museum utilizes existing equipment and the unpaid labor of associates familiar with the group. To date, one-30% of the described species of nearctic erigonines have been imaged, with the assistance of loans of specimen material from several museums and private collections. Completion will require the participation of a number of other linyphiid-rich collections.

Collection managers with reliably identified erigonine females that are not yet represented at LinEpig who would like to assist with this effort can contact the project manager:
