This atlas would have been impossible without the sterling efforts of an enthusiastic group of spider recorders, in particular my Spider Recording Scheme colleagues Wayne Rixom, John Stanney and John Bates who supplied the majority of the recent records.
I would also like to thank the many other recorders listed below, who have sent in records for the scheme (my apologies to anyone I have omitted):
G.A.Arnold, M.A.Arnold, M.Bailey (EN), S.Barnes (SWT), K.P.Bloor (Potteries Museum), M.G.Bloxham (SandNats), D.R.Cowden (SRS), S.Dobson (SRS), J.P.Field, G.Halfpenny (Staffs BRC), R.Harvey (SRS), C.C.Hills (SOTES), I.J.Hopkins (SOTES), C.Johnson, J.P.Leigh, Dr P.Merrett (SRS), T.Mountain, J.R.Parker (SRS), D.A.Procter (SRS), Dr M.J.Roberts (SRS), C.J.Smith (SRS National Organiser), R.Snazell (SRS), Stoke-on-Trent Environmental Survey (SOTES), Staffordshire Biological Records Centre, Staffordshire Wildlife trust (SWT), J.Walker (SOTES), Dr P.A.Walker, M.Waterhouse (RSPB), M.R.Weston (SOTES), A.J.White (SRS), A.M.Wild.
In addition, I would like to thank Peter Merrett for confirming first County Record status for several of the later records and for checking my identifications. And finally, if it were not for the 'gentle persuasion' of John Dalingwater, I would not be associated with the Spider Recording Scheme and this atlas would not have been possible.
