A male Metellina segmentata

A male Metellina segmentata almost certainly, as these are mostly found in the autumn, tho' this is quite late for a male. Not a bad guess as they are currently in the Tetragnathidae, but Metellinas are not so elongated.

revised identification

Thanks for the identification Dick - I'll add it on your behalf, but if you don't mind using the "Add a revision" link, above, next time you need to give an additional identificaion, that's how the site is intended to work.
