Comments & ID Thoughts

Welcome to the unofficial SpiderID resource share! This is a place for identifiers to share information about spider resources they find helpful, especially resources that are available online.

Meet Fred. He hangs out at the local baseboard. Fred is a pseudoscorpion, or book scorpion, and consequently an appropriate mascot for our resource library.

Please comment thoughtfully, keeping personal discussions on other threads to maximize accessibility and usability of the resources posted here.

Anyone interested in discussing Fred himself, please comment on one of my other photos to get my attention, and I will make a Fred-specific post. (actual sex of pictured individual unknown)

These cool arachnids are called pseudo scorpions.
Order Pseudoscorpiones – Pseudoscorpions – BugGuide.Net


I love it! This will spare me from listing useful resources for volunteers who are new to the site. I’ll add the ones I have Favorited links for. This just became one of them.

OK, I got it. I can see a place for other arachnids. Perhaps discussion sub forums for the different orders.
