I have always enjoyed all forms of nature,and have just recently started collecting and photographing spiders and insects of all forms from my area.I am trying to document everything and give it a name. I am doing this because was a dream of mine to have a degree in some form of arachnology or entomology and for my granddaughter and/or future grandchildren to know what forms of life are in our area. I have gained so much knowledge from this site. I greatly appreciate everyone's input.
I keep most of everything I collect for two days. If you see something you are interested in adding to your collection, identification purpose, please notify me. Spiders only if they have died from natural or unknown reasons or unknown species, I will not kill them for known species. Some of my earlier posted items may already be preserved, just ask and I will gladly share if I have it.
Note:At the present time I am sending my Beetles except for the Elaterid's to Brad Bard.
Elaterid Beetles to Blain.
