Found this spider on a rotten log in Shotover. The log was in woodland, but very close to open acid grassland. It was not on a web. It has insanely long front legs, 3 claws on the tarsi and auxiliary foot claws, so I think its in the Araneus family. The body length is 5mm.

Excellent. Good photos and lots of descriptive text. More please, I need to take notice of spiders.
