Good guide

Don't know how the Tegenaria crept in there though.

Oops

Ah yes.. getting my genera muddled up ~ a good guide apart from that bit then :^)

The correct version should, (of course) be :-

Elongate shape => Tetragnatha.
Dark sternum rules out t.extensa/silvicola.
Epigyne shape gives t.nigrita or t.montana Paleness along epigyne centreline, and shape of corners indicate montana rather than the rarer nigrita.
