Arachnologische Gesellschaft

About Arachnids

We answer many frequently asked questions on spiders under Spinnen für Einsteiger and treat some special topics like banana spiders, silk and venom (in German). We describe the arachnological web and link to several sites offering help to identify European spiders. A forum offers contact to experts and a Wiki which introduces into the world of arachnids and their identification. A link to the online identification site araneae is given.

Several projects (studies) on arachnids are presented.

Euscorpius italicus from France
Alopecosa fabrilis
Ladybird spider Eresus kollari
Crab spider Misumena vatia
Oxyopes lineatus
Spitting spider Scytodes thoracica
