Latrodectus is a broadly distributed genus of spiders with several species that together are referred to as true widows. This group is composed of those often loosely called black widow spider, brown widow spiders, and similar spiders. However, such general “common names” are of limited use as the diversity of species is much greater. A member of the Theridiidae family, this genus contains 32 species, which include several North American “Black Widows” (Southern Black Widow Latrodectus mactans, Western Black Widow Latrodectus hesperus, and Northern Black Widow Latrodectus variolus). In addition to these in North America are also the Red Widow Latrodectus bishopi and the Brown Widow Latrodectus geometricus, which, in addition to North America, has a much wider geographic distribution. Elsewhere, others include the European black widow (Latrodectus tredecimguttatus), the Australian Redback Black Widow (Latrodectus hasseltii), several different species in Southern Africa that can be called Button spiders, and the South American black widow spiders (Latrodectus corallinus and Latrodectus curacaviensis). Species vary widely in size. In most cases, the females are dark-coloured, but some may have lighter bodies or even reddish. Many can have red, white or brown markings on the upper-side (dorsal) of the abdomen. Some can be readily identifiable by reddish markings on the central underside (ventral) abdomen, which are often hourglass-shaped.

School-age Children. In order to keep the children interested in the art and beauty of butterflies, there are websites that provide more advanced butterfly patterns to be printed for the older children. These butterfly pictures are more meticulous, with additional backgrounds that the children can also color and to enhance their creativity. In addition to coloring books, there are other items for this age group to color such as bookmarks and posters.
Once the children have mastered the simplistic pages that have butterflies for them to color, there are websites with more advanced designs available for these students. Not only are the butterfly designs more detailed, some of these pages are designed such that the children can create their own background designs to complement the insect’s designs.
So, if you are in charge of some kids this year – whether they are your own youngsters, the friends of your children, or a schoolroom full of wee ones – you should not let the Halloween season pass by without giving them the opportunity to fill in some beautiful or scary or just plain fun Halloween colouring pages like Scooby Doo or Disney. You can do the old fashioned thing if you like and lead out to the discount store and buy a few Halloween colouring books, but with technology what it is, you don't truly even have to make that much effort to put the fun of coloring into your schoolroom or living room this Halloween.
