Great shots of a very striking spider!

I'm always amazed at how much more detail you can see in the photos compared with just looking at the subject... especially if you don't want to get too close to something named for its fondness for spitting!
Yes, you're so right - as long as the focus is there! And I often notice some tiny little fly -or whatever - that I never even noticed at the time sitting right next to the thing I thought I was photographing, and then wishing I could go back in time and get a closer view of the little critter!
Excellent pictures. We don't have any records of this species on the SBRC database. Could you let me have some details of location, grid ref, date etc.?

I'd also like to mention Nigma walckenaeri which I have found in the ivy, brambles etc at the back of my garden and in the front garden.

About 30 years ago I lived in a flat in Kentford Suffolk that had Scytodes. I got a (poor) picture of it - maybe I ought to post it here, though I'd have to scan it first.
