social media - #ukspiders
Hi All,

I'm experimenting with using hashtags in twitter for distributing spider information. I had a look at #spider / #spiders and there is the occasional arachnological titbit, but drowned out by a background of arachnophobia, and references to sports cars, comic books, etc.

So instead I'll be experimenting with tweeting items of possible uk arachnological interest to #ukspiders from my user (AT)mattprince1969. For now it may only be the occasional dubious picture of a spider I've found to keep the hashtag 'out there', or a retweet of a spider event or news item but it would be fantastic to see more serious and informative arachnid related news crop up from other sources.

Regards, Matt Prince

p.s. #ukspider is shorter.. but #ukspiders seems to make more sense somehow

Dear Colin

I'm afraid you can't identify Coelotes from pictures, you need examination under a low power microscope to identify this spider. It is far more likely in the situation you describe that you found Amaurobius or another spider. I don't suppose you can send the spider for identification? If so, please contact me
