Spiders, Harvestmen, Scorpions, Pseudoscorpions, Ticks, Mites, etc.

Good for Identifying pseudoscorpions or at least being told exactly what it needed to ID them. The Facebook page is best but there is also a twitter page available 

This key to the major groups of UK soil mites is under development by Felicity Crotty (Aberystwyth University) and Matthew Shepherd (Natural England).

Spiders with BIG palps


I beat some tiny (2 - 3mm) long immature male spiders yesterday from the box hedge outside my window. They have HUGE palps, each being nealy as big as the cephalothorax. What spiders have such huge palps? I can't see anything remotely like it in Roberts, I don't think it's a money spider but any tips appreciated.
