Observation - IMG_6560 cropped - UK and Ireland. Description: Small hump-backed spider. Very slow-moving, which made photography relatively easy. Colour: honey and black. Carrying what appeared to be an egg-sac. So, presumably female. Never seen one of these before. Was released in house. A wonderful creature.
