Arachnid verifiers for the S.Wales records

Noticed some records that haven't been checked/verified are about a year old.  Is someone currently covering this? Thanks

It appears no one is yet

It appears no one is yet verifiying spider records for Wales. It's the same for much of England and Scotland. I think this is because the Spider Recording Scheme is yet to utulise iRecord.

The SRS did have a trial

The SRS did have a trial scheme targettig some larger spiders which seemed to be quite successful.  The previous organiser was quite opposed to iRecord but it is under new new person.  The problem with spiders is that for most you need good pictures of the demale genitalia/male pedials, but they aren't really any worse inthis than beetles or slugs.
