For spiders, try:
Scharff, N. and Coddington, J. (1997) Zool. J. Linn. Soc. 120: 355-434
Griswold, C., Coddington, J., Hormiga, G, and Scharff, N. (1998) Zool. J.
Linn. Soc. 123: 1-99
Hormiga, G. (1994) Zool. J. Linn. Soc. 111: 1-71
Coddington, J. (1990) Acta Zool. Fennica 190: 75-87
Griswold, C., Coddington, J., Platnick, N, and Forster, R. (1999) J. Arachnol.
27(1): 53-63
And maybe the following (on iguana's) is also of interest:
Martins, E. and Lamont, J. (1998) Anim. Behav. 55: 1685-1706
