The only comprehensive treatment of camel-spiders available! The Biology of Camel-Spiders is the only work available that deals exclusively with Arachnida, Solifugae. Beginning with an introduction to Solifugae, this work covers folklore surrounding this group, functional anatomy and physiology, life history, ecology, behavior, phylogeny, biogeography and taxonomy, as well as field techniques and laboratory rearing methods. Extensive coverage is also devoted to natural history, habitat preference, diet composition, dispersion patterns, mating and hunting behavior, and burrowing activities, as well as diel/seasonal patterns of activity. The book also discusses the biology of Solifugae in relation to other major groups of arachnids and points out the importance of solifuges to desert communities.

Solifugae do fluoresce in UV light. I just caught one at a camp ground in Lone Pine, CA to test the theory. I posted a picture to my blog on tumblr. A google search of "Camel Spider UV light" will bring up my page as well as a couple others discussing the subject.

A complete waste of a generous amount of money, unreliable and very poorly assembled. A must have in any arachnologist trash can.
