Last year i posted a link to an observation i put up on ISPOT of a Cave Spider (Meta) and a respondent suggested that i could mail them a specimen in order to take the ID to species for a better record. I can't seem to locate the reply now but did notice a similar post from another correspondent (also of Meta) with a reply from Peter Harvey advising sending the spider in a container with some damp tissue placed inside a jiffy bag.
I returned to the location yesterday, can confirm continued presence and am happy to collect. I only looked briefly but saw a large adult plus what looked like a dead one in an old web.
So just wanted to check that it's Peter i should mail the spider to, and should I send the deceased arachnid (looked fairly fresh, far as i could tell), the live one, or both for good measure? Do i need to perforate the tub and bag?
Thanks and kind regards
