For those researchers interested in this topic Keith Basterfield has compiled, "A Catalogue And Analysis Of Australian 'Angel Hair' Cases" at http://project1947.com/kbangel.htm Keith analyzes the cases in a number of ways including location, time of year, time of day, duration and many other criteria including those cases where spiders have been found at the sites. Also provide are cases where analysis of the material revealed that it originated with spiders. Keith also some relevant notes on spiders. Murray Bott wrote a supplement to Keith's work, "New Zealand Reports of 'Angel Hair' in relation to the UFO Phenomenon" Finally, a small amount of additional links are provided after the end of the Murray's article.
