Abstract: On this page the Bavarian Agency for Viticulture and Horticulture presents a simple, general identification key for insects and spiders aimed at amateur gardeners and people interested in natural history who have no foreknowledge of the subject. By means of many pictures and a little text, and with no knowledge of subject jargon, it should be possible for the amateur to assign his finds to one or other of the groups of insect or spiders through a sort of question and answer game with an “Expert Computer”. The promise of simplicity and clarity does not allow consideration of all the animal groups so that, for example, dragonflies, cockroaches, and lice have been ignored. In any case, it is hardly possible to take the identification to the species level. Normally this is not necessary. Just the knowledge that the animal in question belongs, say, to the bugs, is enough to obtain an overview of the life and importance of this group in the ecology section that follows.
