If you are on Facebook you should check out UK Spiders page. On here are real experts from the UK and abroad who can help with some tricky identifications. On here this year some members have been doing a spider year list, with Graeme Lyons finding 360+ species so far! The vast majority of these can only be identified with a microscope and specialist keys to work out the correct result.
For a novice like me, I am happy to just photograph what i find then see if I can sort it out. If not I try the experts.
Anyway, here are some of the ones that have crossed my path this year...
|1. Arctosa cinerea the Grey Wolf Spider.|
|A Cucumber Spider on a corncockle flower.|
|Woodlouse Spider Dysdera crocata|
|Nursery Web Spider Pisaura miribilis|
|Goblin Spider Oonops species.|
|Four spotted Orb Weaver Araneus quadratus|
I'll add some more soon.....
