Singaporean spider expert Joseph Koh sent the following request:
Friula wallacei (photo below) -- This spectacular araneid is related to Gasteracantha and other members of the subfamily Gasteracanthinae. It is noteworthy for two reasons:
(a) It was collected in Sarawak by Alfred Russel Wallace himself;
(b) It has not been collected since, and therefore the specimen at Oxford University is the only specimen in the world.
Share your photograph if you come across any such live specimen in Sarawak or elsewhere in Borneo! We will then know at least its natural colouration and its distribution, and add another way to immortalise Wallace.
