SPIDERS (Arachnida)
Biodiversity > Invertebrates > spiders

183 spiders species have been recorded on Lord Howe Island. Most of these are very small and are rarely seen except by specialist scientists searching for them. The only known poisonous spider on the island is the red back spider, probably not native, but accidently introduced some time after settlement in 1833.

Some of the larger and more common spiders are presented here as representative of what you may see when on the island.
