The relationships of Parasteatoda tepidariorum to select arthropods. Representatives of spiders (Araneae) with sequenced genomes (P. tepidariorum, Stegodyphus mimosarum, and Acanthoscurria geniculata) are shown with respect to other chelicerates with sequenced genomes including scorpions (Centruroides sculpturatus and Mesobuthus martensii), a tick (Ixodes scapularis), a mite (Tetranychus urticae), and a horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus) as well as representatives of Myriapoda (Strigamia maritima), Crustacea (Daphnia pulex), and Insecta (Drosophila melanogaster). Topology is based on Sharma et al. [53]
