These photos display just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to spider biodiversity in Trinidad and Tobago and the Eastern Caribbean, however all species shown are found in Trinidad and Tobago, those found only in the Eastern Caribbean are so stated and the islands they are found in. The location the specimen was collected from is given in brackets below the name and description.

Many thanks to my colleagues who allowed me to post some of their photos.
