First record of Bertrana striolata (Arachnida: Araneae: Araneidae) in Amazonian Ecuador

Resumen

We present the first record of the orb-weaver spider Bertrana striolata from Amazonian lowlands (east of the Andes) in Ecuador, based on a specimen collected at the Tiputini Biodiversity Station, province of Orellana, Ecuador. Previously the species was known in the country from just one locality on the Pacific lowlands (west of the Andes).
