I was watching a grasshopper struggling to free itself from the web for about 2 minutes before this spider shot out of hiding in the corner. It wrapped the insect in silk in a matter of a minute or two before disappearing into the corner and out of sight again. This behaviour and the stripes on the thorax make me think this is probably not Araneus diadematus but I may be wrong.
