Shortly after the American group from BHL-US arrived in Canberra for the BHL-Au meeting, the group all noticed that we had an eight legged visitor from the world of Biodiversity at the meeting. The 5-6 inch Huntsman hung around on the curtains for the rest of the meeting. Waving legs at appropriate times duing the meeting, I think that we have full buy-in for the Global BHL from the arachnids at least.
