"Sleeping" spider on the underside of a piece of fallen bark. Focus stack of multiple images.
No interactions present.
PS I always amazed by the detail obtained from photo stacks.

Very nice image!
i.e. look at the difference between the height of the front middle eyes with the base of the chelicerae (the height of the clypeus) and compare with a definate picture of tegeneria saeva and you should be able to see that the height of the clypeus is very much lower with this beast than with the teg.
Tegs have very little in the way of leg rings, this spider is clearly annulated as would be expected from a.similis/a.fenestralis. However fenestralis would never show such a strongly curved and attenuated palpal apophysis.
Thanks everyone for your help and very useful comments.
