Spidentify, Australia's spider ID app

Minibeast Wildlife’s Spidentify award-winning app – the pocket ID tool and field guide for all Australians.


Spiders are a fact of life for Australians. We share our homes with them, check our shoes for them, run away from them – and yet, we often know surprisingly little about them. When it comes to telling the potentially dangerous ones from the harmless, the web-spinners from the burrow-dwellers, the back end from the front – what do we really know?


Minibeast Wildlife’s innovative Spidentify app for Australian spiders puts the key to this complex and fascinating world of spiders in the palm of your hand. We guide you step-by-step through identifying each spider you find, using what you see to build a personalised list of the most likely suspects. Quickly access information out in the field, and leave the heavy reference books behind.
