ID of British spiders and bite reports
 
We're often asked for ID on British spiders which can be fun figuring out, and sometimes helps to illustrate what inverts we have in our our areas, as opposed to those of distant lands.
So, with a view to helping here is a great site for doing exactly that:
Photo Gallery - British Arachnological Society

And, for those wanting to know what kind of a bite we can expect from our British spiders (native or otherwise), here's another great site:
UK spider bites | Natural History Museum

worthy of a sticky?

Thanks Poxicator REALLY appreciate this been searching for something more detailed than uksafari just never had any luck finding anything. I think it should be a sticky, either way I've book marked the site ;)

Just to add to the links Pete has added, there's a few of us within the forum familiar with various UK species so people could also use this thread to upload photos to attempt ID from.

Here's a couple of other sites I've been using apart from Uksafari:

great idea for a thread, pete.
i get stuck on enough of the bloody natives lol
and it should clear up a lot of fears that Steatoda sp. are evil killers

Hmm had no idea Stone spiders could bite,I have been finding dozens of them in my room over the last few weeks.Never even seen one before until recently.
Ive actually been keeping the largest one I found for the last two or so weeks.
