The sl3 spider is a diagrammatic category used to study the representation theory of the quantum group Uq(sl3). The morphisms in this category are generated by a basis of non-elliptic webs. Khovanov- Kuperberg observed that non-elliptic webs are indexed by semistandard Young tableaux. They establish this bijection via a recursive growth algorithm. Recently, Tymoczko gave a simple version of this bijection in the case that the tableaux are standard and used it to study rotation and joins of webs. We build on Tymoczko’s bijection to give a simple and explicit algorithm for constructing all non-elliptic sl3 webs.
