Abe, you stumped littleman on a spider question! I would have this thread printed and framed, it is very rare that this happens.:)
The "Scooters" are the crawlers, I do not submit to AVuk.
Henry is the only mirago bot I know of.

littleman can still have a grab because I need a list of as many spider names as poss, not just UK ones ;)
is google's spider called googlebot or do they have multiple spiders with different names now?

I have a list of robots at [jafsoft.com...]
The names tend to exclude version numbers, and
I don't go back and check they're still active once added to the page.
I also have a page on search engines at
This includes a list of around a dozen UK
search engines, but doesn't include their spider
I seem to be posting this URL a few times :-)
Is there a resource page on this site I should
be submitting these links to?
