Thanks, Alan

Looking at the photo in my Hamlyn Guide (Dick Jones 1983), I can see the resemblance.

Memories

I was with him when he found that. We were searching for Hygrolycosa rubrofasciata and failed, but he found that instead - he found H. r. later.

That's interesting -

I haven't used the guide much, but it seems well written and I've never found an error.
