This spider was hiding in the metal section of a window frame. I spotted it when I was trimming ivy. The body is 18 mm long.
No interactions present.
... was my thought too but couldn't find a record of them being 18mms long. Are you sure the lines on the paper aren't 1mm apart?
The lines are 2.5 mm apart. The distance between the thick lines is 1 cm. The abdomen of this spider is very long compared to some pictures of this species that I found on the internet. I am pretty sure it is a female.
