The American Arachnological Society (AAS) is a scientific organization founded in 1972 in order to promote the study of arachnids by seeking to achieve closer cooperation and understanding between amateur and professional arachnologists along with publication of the Journal of Arachnology.[1][2] The society holds annual meetings around the United States and membership is open to all individuals who share the common objectives held by the society.[3]


The AAS journal (Journal of Arachnology) is the original publication for a number of previously unidentified species including:

Two symposia and several formal paper presentations were held, and some seasoned participants described the meeting as the best scientific meeting that they had ever attended.
