Spiders Search Page
Our databases cover selected species of spiders, particularly those of major medical importance. We use the most recent taxonomy available to us, therefore if you use an old scientific name you may not find the species you are looking for. For searches based on geographic area, always use Country first before selecting Region. Region works only as an OR selection in our databases. For example, if a spider is found only in Australia, it will appear in the Region "Australia", but if it also occurs in New Guinea, it will only appear in the Region "Australia + New Guinea + Indonesia". Therefore if you search for Australian spiders using only Country "Australia", you will get a complete list of those in our databases. If you search on Region "Australia" instead, the list will be less complete, because it will return only those species found exclusively in Australia.
