Found in the bath. Tentatively marked this as a house spider but are they usually as dark as this?
No interactions present.
Tegenaria spiders can only be identified to species level with microscopic examination, usually of the palps and mouthparts, and so this can't be said to be T. gigantea. In fact, I'm not even sure that this is a Tegenaria - they're usually hairier, and the shape looks off somehow.
Record your ladybird sightings!
Thanks for your comments, Richard. As I said in my description, I'm really not sure about this one. It's different from a lot of the other house spiders I've seen.
It does not look nearly leggy enough for Tegenaria, and as Rimo said, there are several very similar species that need a microscope for ID.
