nor did anyone else..

until Hippa and Osaka split them out in 1982

I think you can safely call it 'candy stripe' or enoplognatha ovata sensu lato (meaning broadest sense, covering both of the recent splits).

e.ovata is commoner, but the true status is still a bit clouded by confusion between the two.
