arrecta has a great plasticity, growing as an epiphyte
life form over drifting floating macrophyte mats.
Therefore, arboreal wandering spider species should occur at greater heights and in greater densities on structurally complex host trees with many epiphytes
than on less complex trees with few epiphytes

The climatic seasonality observed in the region can be identified as an important factor for epiphyte
richness, since it depends on atmospheric moisture for water and nutrients uptake (Benzing, 1990).
