This site is a working draft for A field guide to Spiders of Australia by Robert Whyte and Dr Greg Anderson due to be published in 2014. This web site enjoys the support and collaboration of many arachnologists in Australia and throughout the world, both amateur and professional. We thank our colleages and recognise their valuable contriubutions. Some pages are informally vetted by experts, however any errors are ours, not theirs.
The site is managed by Robert Whyte, Director, Save Our waterways Now, a community organisation working to restore the habitats of waterways in the catchments of Enoggera, Ithaca and Fish Creeks in Brisbane's north and west.
The site began as a small section of arachnids within the Save Our Waterways Now (SOWN) web site . It moved to its own hosting in the summer of 2010/ 2011.
