The Newsletter

The Newsletter is our general informal members' publication, edited by Richard Gallon. Published three times per year in a bright, full colour, A4 format, the Newsletter is the essential read to keep up to date with arachnology and arachnologists!

As well as Society news, book reviews, notices, results from field trips and site surveys, the Newsletter includes articles on all aspects of arachnology. Whilst the focus is on British species, we also publish articles on non-British groups, including tarantulas and scorpions.

It is a forum for all of our members, beginners and experts, UK and Overseas, to publish their photographs, observations, species records, and research, in a lighter format and to a broader audience than the academic literature. A wide variety of articles and letters include research reviews, behaviour, distribution, ecology and taxonomy.

The Newsletter includes supplements of the Spider Recording Scheme (edited by Peter Harvey) and the Harvestman Recording Scheme (edited by Peter Nicholson) focusing on the occurrence and distribution of spiders and harvestmen within the British Isles, as well as articles on rare or difficult to identify species.
