The World of the Arthropods

Welcome to The World of the Arthropods!


From lucky-charm ladybugs to unfairly unloved spiders, from butterflies with shimmering colours to so loved bees or to the millipede that don’t have thousand feet, these little critters called arthropods are everywhere, both in cities and in the countryside, both in interior and in exterior, both in urban legends and in true facts… No one is insensitive to them, but so few people know them, know their world, know their way of living, their wonderful diversity…


That’s why I invite you to discover the rich and fascinating arthropod’s world, to travel in the heart of this unknow universe, and to change your mind about these so usefull creatures!


In The World of the Arthropods, I offer you:

  • identification sheets mainly about French/European species
  • web pages dealing with biology, behavior, taxonomy, arthropods’ history…
  • one blog where I post photos of arthropods I met


You can find spiders in Chelicerata => Arachnida!

I have a Youtube Channel for videos!
You can follow me on Facebook where I share my blog!
And on Instagram where I post in live what I found
I also have a Flickr where you can see previews of my trips!


Don’t forget to visit the blog!
And if you want to be kept informed, you can subscribe to the Newsletter!
You can also write to the guestbook!
