Nice one Dhirendra! Can I help you further since this morning? Spiders also belong to the Arthropods category, not Others. The order Araneae is correct, but id you do not know the exact ID (Genus and species), leave the scientific name field empty, and tick the Help with ID box.You can still indicate in your description or notes that this belong to the order Araneae. The blog piece below will tell you more about how scientific names work:
