Spiders from Europe, Australia and some immunology

Cheiracanthium erraticum

This site contains over 1800 pictures of European and Australian spiders and information about them.
The European spiders were mainly found in The Netherlands and France. The Australian spiders were for the greater part found in Queensland and in lesser amounts in the Northern Terrtory, Western Australia, New South Wales and Victoria. The European spider site can be read in English, Dutch, Polish and some pages in Esperanto, the Australian pages are English.
There is a section about the common biology of the spider, and the venomity of spiders.

I try to identify the spiders from the pictures I made. Therefore there may be errors in the determination.
This site is regulary updated with newer pictures. Before 2005 the pictures were digitized with a Nikon Coolscan III from negatives or color slides. Since 2005 the pictures are digital images made with a Minolta dynax 7D with 100 mm macrolens or a Canon 550D with MP-E 65 mm 5x macrolens.
