Disclaimer: Because most of the spiders on these pages are living specimens photographed in situ, and not harmed in the process, it has not been possible to carry out the microscopic examinations generally regarded by arachnologists as necessary for positive identifications. The identifications on these pages are therefore based upon general appearances and distinguishing characteristics, involving, where possible, comparisons with photographs of positively identified specimens. Other information not expressed in the photographs, such as size, location, habitat and season are also used to make or confirm identifications. The species level identifications can, for the most part, regarded as being “near certain” but, for the reasons given, cannot be regarded as being definitive. However mistakes and misidentifications cannot be ruled out. If you spot any of these, please let us know.
