Hi Stephen, 

       Actually I think that "re-dating" of Clerck's paper goes all the way back to 1959, but is widely ignored.  Clerck's work was published in 1757.  Furthermore, Norman Platnick in his World Catalog of Spiders still dates those names as Clerck, 1757.  Having published papers on spiders myself, I still feel quite comfortable using 1757 as the date for that work.

                          ---------------Ken

No, spider names also begin on 1 Jan 1758, according to the ICZN (1999: Art. 3.1)

Addendum,
                  And I just remembered, even among zoological names, spider names begin in 1757.
