I am an amateur arachnologist and nature lover specialising in the huntsmen of Australia (Sparassoidea). I have always had a particular fascination in arthropods and the natural world, particularly spiders and insects (Huntsman spiders and moths currently being my favourites). I am a member of the Entomological Society of Victoria and am their spider specialist.

I currently do ID's for mainly the following taxa which I have grouped in this project: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/ben-s-ids

However, I have general knowledge in all Australian spiders so feel free to tag me if you require assistance. I can try to assist with moth ID's too, so feel free to tag me for these also.

I am currently working on a huntsman field guide for the Victorian and Tasmanian species, and if it does well then I will make an Australia wide version.
