Spiders of Wiltshire

A picture for Spiders-in-Wiltshire

These pages contain current information (to the end of 2005) on the spiders found in Wiltshire (Vice counties 7 and 8, give-or-take the odd km or tweak of the boundary). This information includes distribution maps (of records, if not of the spiders - coverage is never complete) and plots indicating when the spiders have been found and their relative numbers through the year. These plots are based on Wiltshire records - comparison with data from other regions/counties may well indicate geographic variations in spider activity.

I've produced a page for each spider species recorded in Wiltshire - to date there are about 350 species known to occur in Wiltshire. Even if I have no details as to where precisely a spider was found in Wiltshire, I've still included a page - if anyone has any information on these or any other spiders in Wiltshire, please contact me.

In many cases these distribution maps will indicate recorder activity rather than spider distribution. More records will always be needed if a true picture of spider distribution is to be built up. If you have any records of spiders in Wiltshire, let me know; mailto: mc28askins@yahoo.com
