Sherman Chauncey Bishop (1887–1951) was a herpetologist and arachnologist from New York. He studied at Cornell University and, with Cyrus R. Crosby, gave the Spruce-fir moss spider its scientific name.[1] His Handbook of Salamanders (1943) was the first serious and comprehensive treatment of North American salamanders since Cope (1889).
