I think this one may also be

I think this one may also be Xantho pilipes due to the very hairy legs! Then i am just going of photos and a sketch so i can't be sure.

Taxonomy again

I assume that X.incisus (the species listed in most field guides) has been synonomised with X.hydrophilus.

Anyway, this specimen has hairy legs so its more likely to be X pilipes as suggested by BDeed.

I also note that X pilipes hasn't had its name changed.
