Found during a sweep of some long grass. Patterning in field guide differs slightly from specimen, so not sure. Can anyone give a positive ID?
No interactions present.
It's certainly a Tibellus. Can you ID it to oblongus from a photo with certainty?
That's why I'm asking?
I don't think it can be separated from maritimus from a photo but factors like habiatat might give a good clue. See Nick Upton's comments here -
I agree with Nick, the habitat it was found in would suggest that it is T. oblongus. Although I understand the reasoning behind dissecting, I find it quite strange in this day and age of conservation that we are supposed to kill the species to ID them correctly.
