Well, for insects and other terrestrial arthropods in the Palaearctic, the
best ;-) forum is Entomologica Fennica
http://sekj.pc.helsinki.fi/EF/entfen.htm (indexed in  Biological Abstracts,
Current Contents A, B & ES, Entomology Abstracts, BIOSIS, BIOSIS U.K.,
CABS, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts, Inst. for Scientific Info Publication
Processing), though from your e-mail signature I gather you work with
marine arthropods.
