Fauna Portal Australia

The Fauna Portal is an authoritative identification platform for Australian species, specifically invertebrates. For undescribed species, it uses a simple nomenclatural system based on unique, successive genus and species numbers derived from the underlying Fauna Portal database. Taxonomic stability is maintained by designating a reference specimen for each undescribed species.

British Arachnological Society

Welcome to the Website of the British Arachnological Society. Here you can find information on those fascinating animals, arachnids. Our emphasis is on British spiders but we don't exclude other arachnids such as Harvestmen (opilionids), Pseudoscorpions and Scorpions. There are images, distribution maps, general and more specific information on the different groups and species

International Society of Arachnology

The International Society of Arachnology is the premier international scientific society devoted to arachnology. ISA focuses on the arachnid orders Amblypygi, Araneae, Opiliones, Palpigradi, Pseudoscorpiones, Ricinulei, Schizomida, Scorpiones, and Uropygi, but not Acari. ISA's goals are to promote the study of Arachnology and communication of arachnological information among researchers via meetings and publications.

We are the Chew's family in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Our interest is to study the nature. We go to the bush on weekends to watch insects and spiders. Check our Blog to find out what we are currently doing. We are not professionals. We recorded and commented on what we found. On the following pages, we are NOT going to tell you insects and spiders are different because they have six or eight legs, NOR the butterflies and moths are different because they have different antennae etc.. Instead, by discussions, we try to find out why there are differences. We try to find out more about Evolution.
