ID comment

In my opinion the ID should be just "Salticus".

It's probably Salticus scenicus but there are some very similar species; according to the Spider and Harvestman Recording Scheme website microscopic examination is necessary to be sure of species. There can be some variation in colour so it's not a reliable identifying feature on its own.
