Danish arachnologist hunting down every single species of Danish spider.
I joined iNaturalist in early 2020 and I've been putting in all observations made through the years that I remember the locations of, as well as new ones.
I have a masters degree in biology from The University of Copenhagen. My master thesis was on crab spiders' sensory biology with a special emphasis on their vision.
North European crab spiders and their habitus is also my strong suit.

Favorite taxa:

  • North European Spiders - I cannot help with observations done outside Europe, at least not to species level.
  • Scarabaeoidea
  • Primates
  • Chelicerates in general
  • Butterflies

--Good spider links for the beginner---
Distribution maps, pictures and genital drawings:
The british arachnological society has species descriptions, and a tonne of other cool stuff
Great genital pictures of all common european spiders, opiliones, and pseudoscorpions
The german atlas project (with distribution maps and similar)
Massive Cellar spider (family: Pholcidae) project!
The german spider-wiki, is packed with information, and works perfectly with google translate, if you aren't good at german!
Cool SEM images of a selected band of European spiders:

Amazing gallery of Swedish spiders:

New species for my country that I've found:

Xysticus lineatus
Cheiracantium punctorum
Philodromus rufus (combined effort with Amanda Johannission who spotted it)
Sardinidion blackwalli
Parasteatoda tabulata
Clubiona juvenis
Closterotomus trivialis
Engyodontium aranearum (Joint effort with Mattis Aksel Sylvest)
Thanatus vulgaris (Joint effort)
Scytodes "univittata" (Joint effort with Nikolaj Scharff)
Dorypteryx longipennis
Possibly Microterys seyon - But i would never have known without seeing that Jonas Lutz and Peter Bonde had identified it secondarily
