This website has been made to fill a need for information on spiders found in TASMANIA. It is intended for the amateur enthusiast and members of the general public trying to find a name for a spider they have found. It is not intended to be a comprehensive scientific document as much of the information on spiders is hard to source and is of a dynamic nature, changing often as new scientific research is carried out.

Some spiders are unique to Tasmania, while others also occur on mainland Australia or are introduced from overseas.
