Classification of the Afghanistan Camel Spider
Species of spiders are classified according to shared physical characteristics. Spider taxonomy is the science of finding, describing, classifying and naming organisms in a hierarchical system. This method of classification helps when a description of 40,000 spiders is required. The organization of living things have seven major categories: Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus and Species. The classification of Afghanistan Camel Spiders are as follows:
Kingdom relates to the highest taxonomic group into which organisms are grouped. It is one of five biological categories: Monera, Protoctista, Plantae, Fungi or Animalia
Phyla are groups of classes. They are a series of animals or plants genetically connected with shared characteristics. It is the second biggest grouping in taxonomy. Arthropoda are jointed-foot invertebrates: arachnids, crustaceans, insects etc
A Class is a taxonomic group containing one or more orders. Arachnids consist of any of the eight-legged creatures, including spiders and scorpions, of the class Arachnida
A taxonomic order within the class Arachnida (spiders)
The subclass is another taxonomic category below a class and above an order which helps in the classification process
Another taxonomic category below an order and above a genus which helps in the classification process.
Another taxonomic category below a family and above the level of species which helps in the classification process.
Species: Carnivorous or omnivorous
Species is a taxonomic group whose members can interbreed.
