Disclaimer: Replies that I publish are done so with no guarantee of authenticity or validity. Please DO NOT rely on identifications from any other than an official source like a Museum or entomologist. Furthermore, where a spider is described as  "not dangerous" does not mean that it doesn't bite or cause a reaction. Any spider can bite and some people react differently to others, so it's best to treat all spiders with caution. That doesn't mean of course, going around killing them!!! Leave them alone and they will leave you alone - we are NOT spider prey and they don't jump in out mouths while we are asleep or attack unprovoked! Most countries only have one or two spiders that are considered really dangerous to humans, there are thousands of spiders that aren't!! Please choose a section below.

UNIDENTIFIED SPIDERS

Reply: A local spider from my hometown and I don't know what it is!! Shame on me!!! - glen

Hi Glen We live in the northern suburbs of Brisbane in Queensland. This photo is of a spider found on our rose bush in the garden. Could you please identify it? Many thanks Karin

16 December, 2015:
Hi, I have two of these spiders in my garden and since I have young kids playing there I would really appreciate an ID. The body is just smaller than a match in length, and they are very, very quick. These were taken in Windhoek, Namibia, Southern Africa. Thanks so much! Camille

...

Reply: Looks a bit like a nursery web spider of some sort but not sure - glen

16 December, 2015:
Hi Glen I hope you can help Weíve been seeing a lot of these spiders in our cupboards and just wondering what they are? Regards James

Reply: Young spiders are hard to ID. Could be a young orb weaver going only on the stripes on the legs. Really not sure sorry - glen

16 December, 2015:
Do you mind if I send you another one? This is a really small spider it's about 5mm long. Our door mat is in perfect focus. The spider is a little blurry though. Hope you can still see it well enough. Regards, Tim

A perfect and finely detailed dusty white spider imprint appeared on a tabletop recently. There were no dusty "tracks" leading to or from. How would this occur?  Baffling!

Hello, I found this spider in my bathroom in Portland, Oregon. It's been hanging out in the corner of the ceiling for a few days. It looks different than a lot of the garden spiders I find around my place. Thank you! Hunter

...

Reply: This is an ant, possibly a velvet ant- glen

20 October, 2015:
Not sure which spider this is can you help.

...

Reply: OK firstly I can't see any brown widow. The spider at the mouth of the structure is a garden orb weaver of some sort. The bits around the sac thing look to be left over insects that had been sucked dry and left in the rubbish so to speak. Do you think the top part is also a spider? It looks more like the remains of an egg sac to me. Very interesting anyway although i don't know if I've been very helpful - glen

15 October, 2015:
I live in Los Angeles, CA. As an amateur photographer, I began challenging myself by taking photos of the bugs and spiders I encounter around my home. I like to know what Iím photographing, so Iíve also taken time to identify and learn something about each new spider or insect that I find. Thatís how I first found your very interesting website. This began when I first discovered a brown widow that was new to this area. Iíve since identified grass spiders, parson spiders, spotted orb weavers, a pirate spider, a lynx spider, and even a couple of tiny feather spiders (uloborus glomosus). Iíve also photographed brown widows (both male and female) at different stages of development. A few weeks ago, I discovered this thing hanging under a window sill on the outside of my house. Itís about 1cm long and contains at least one dead spider and much debris. (I presume the spider is dead because I tried prodding it, and it didnít respond. Also, the legs didnít move over a period of several days.) The spider was fresh when first discovered, and it and has not been eaten or otherwise disturbed in the interval, although the entire structure has become desiccated over time, and more debris and dead things seem to have been added. A young brown widow has recently taken up her post in front of it, and she presents a particularly grim and ghastly aspect! Could she have been the creature that built this? Iíve never seen a brown widow do anything like this. The structure looks something like a cocoon thatís open on the bottom. I know that there are parasitic wasps that use spiders to build cocoons for them, but this doesnít seem to be one of those. Any idea what it is or what made it? I often find odd things when Iím looking, but this one has me stumped. Thanks for any help you can give me. I enjoy cruising your website. Feel free to add these photos to your collection, if you find them useful!

Reply: Similar to a hacklemesh weaver but doesn't have the lighter markings on the abdomen. Probably in the same family though - glen

Thank you Glen. Here is a top view of the Araneidae. I am not an expert arachnologist, so this last species is particularly difficult to identify for me. Elena

Reply: Interesting pattern - glen

21 September, 2015:
Hello Glen, Several times a year I wake up and find a small (1" to 1-1/2" ) spiral pattern of dots on my kitchen window. It doesn't look webby, just like something deposited a tiny blob of white material every 1/8" or so as it crawled round and round, never backtracking. Almost a perfect spiral. Is this the work of a very precise spider, or some other creature? I never see a spider near it. Very hard to photograph because it is so delicate, but maybe you can tell from my picture. Thanks, Linda S. - Katy, TX

...

Reply: Hard to tell from spiderlins - glen

21 September, 2015:
Hi Ė This tiny guy came from above/behind my shoulder while I was sitting at my computer. I caught a glimpse of a shadow on the screen & assumed it was a gnat, so I did the Ďswish gnat thingí to move him aside. That usually takes a couple of times, but this stopped immediately. I had just cleaned my desk, so I tilted my head to see if he would show up from the glare Ė he looked like a grain of salt (yes that is really how tiny he is) I have a handheld microscope, so I got it & figured I would see a tiny gnat. Surprise!!! Any Idea? I live in Las Vegas Valley, found him just last week. Saw one just a tad bigger yesterday outside. He seemed to be swinging in the breeze on a web. ? I have more pics if nec. Thank You in Advance Crystal

Hello. I previously contacted you to identify a spider for me. It turned out to be a camel spider which is an arachnid. Can you please identify this spider too? I'm writing from Pakistan and the place I live in is urban and scarcely populated. I hope these pictures would do. I caught it and put it in a glass jar but I jumped and escaped. I hope it's not venomous. Thank you.

Reply: Not sure, always wary of spiders from South America as the Brazilian Wandering spider lays her egg sac on bananas and they are sometimes arrive in the US that way. Looks more like a fishing spider of some sort - glen

Hello! I was in the garage cleaning when I saw this small female spider curled on the floor with a broken leg segment. I brought her in to warm up and gave her some water. I don't think she's poisonous but I have absolutely no clue what she is. She's not aggressive at all, even when you try to threaten her. She isn't very big, and her form is too slender to be a common house spider or a wood spider.  If you can identify her and recognize if she is venomous, that would be a great help! Thankyou!

If juvenile, I've not seen the adult -- maybe the more common daddy-long-legs eat them. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Hello there! My name is Angelina and I blog about my life here in Costa Rica  at chasingmangos.com. I have this variety of spider around my house always  and I really want to know what kind it is. I've looked online but it's hard  for me to tell. Is there any way you could identify it for me? Thank you.  All the best!  PURA VIDA

One more, these guys come across our property in the mountains here in Costa Rica quite frequently. It looks like a wandering spider to me, but I am not sure. Any ideas?

Hi Glen, This spider was photographed at Crestholme outside Durban, South Africa. I have searched the internet for a possible identification but have had no luck so far. Any idea as to what it is? Regards, Jeff

Hi I have found your website which is very interesting and I wonder whether you can help me. We have a strange web very high in a specimen spruce tree and would like to identify it so that we know whether it is a nuisance or can be left alone. We are located in the Dordogne, Mid/SW France. We have recently had an incident with an Asian hornet's nest which the local Mayor was informed about by one of our neighbours and we do not want any nonsense suggestion by the locals that we should cut down our spruce tree because of the web. So far, I have searched the internet but cannot find any examples like this web. I would be really grateful if you could help. Many thanks and best regards, Sue

Can you tell me what type of spider this and if it is dangerous. I found it on my curtain in the bedroom. I live in the countryside on the Costa del Sol. Thank you.

Hi. We were in Worcester for a few days and found this spider in our car. Just curious about it. Please help

Good day, I trust you are well? I just want to enquire on a photo that was sent to me by a family friend. I attached the photo for you. Honestly I think it is fake, but she says that she found four of them. She lives next to the Orange River, in Aliwal North, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Hope you will be able to assist with the enquiry. Kind regards, Elanie

Hi Can you identify this spider I found in my house in Auckland NZ? Cheers

Reply: Really can't be certain from the photo, maybe some sort of crab spider - glen

Hi again Glen.  Thought you might be able to use this photo of another spider from Mount Fairy. Not a great picture of the spider, but shows the nest.

Hi, What kind of spider is this? I have a few tiny ones around my apartment. Thank you! Katherine
