small spider between 3 & 4mm in length with a very distinctive, truncated, heart-shaped abdomen and long narrow appendages at the head end; the legs are a striking white, which fits the description of the genus Zenonina (ADS(2014) p.334. Determining a species is a little more difficult as the current specimen has a sandy brown abdomen rather than dark grey to black one. It does have a large white spot below corresponding to the description of Z. albocaudata.
