A periscope spider!

Very nice Alan.

Are you going to attempt to rear him to maturity?

Hi Matt, I remember you

Hi Matt, I remember you saying on WAB that you wanted to see one. I don't think there's any need to rear it - I've found several (all at about the same stage of growth) low down in my compost heap. If I leave them undisturbed for a month or two hopefully they'll be adult when I next look.
