Candy-stripe spider

I agree that this is a candy-stripe spider (Enoplognatha ovata), very distinctive with the two red lines on the abdomen. This is a very variable species, though this is a perfectly marked specimen. It's not hard to see why it is called candy-stripe.

Dear Graham, yes! Thank you for this, I think I was quite lucky finding a perfectly marked one.
