epigyne

Andy, I can't see the epigyne clearly from your photo, but if it is more apparent on the actual specimen it may be possible to say which species this is, although in Michael Roberts' book he cautions that the epigynes can vary quite a lot in Araniella. Would need a better spider identifier than me to make a judgement!
