This page is here to contain any species which I come across which aren't in one of the other groups previous mentioned, and due to scarcity or specifics of seeing them, are probably not going to be collected by me in a major way.

Although by far the largest and most diverse group of vertebrates found in the UK, trying to collect fish species without resorting to fishing them out of the seas and rivers isn't really a practical affair.  Any species I do collect here will likely be the result of rock-pooling, pond dipping, unusually clear water or being able to see them due to sheer enormity.

Common Eel (Anguilla anguilla)
Giant Mudskipper (Periophthalmodon schlosseri)

The Arachnids are a widespread arthropod group that in the UK and much of the world are most commonly represented by Spiders.  However, the group also includes scorpions, ticks, mites and harvestmen amoung others/  Compared to insects, arachnids have 8 legs rather than 6, but lack wings and antennae.

Candystripe Spider (Enoplognatha ovata)
Cucumber Green Spider (Araniella opisthographa)
European Garden Spider (Araneus diadematus)
JorĊ Spider (Nephila clavata)

Though there are only a very limited number of jellyfish species in British Coastal waters, they represent some of the largest of the invertebrates found in the region.  Though collectively known to most people as Jellyfish, some species belong to somewhat different groups with comparatively alien against the more familiar species.
