Arachnid observations


This is a collection of
all arachnids (spiders, scorpions and related groups) I have spotted. Each observation is supported with date, location and species ID information. Gender is also indicated whenever possible. When a species ID was not possible, family or genus information was provided instead. Many observations await proper identification. Due to the ubiquity of arachnids, the observations are listed by date, from more recent to older as one descends.
