Nuctenea umbratica

Observation - Nuctenea umbratica - UK and Ireland. Description: Managed to get some good pics of this spider last night but then couldn't find it in my book. The body length is around 9mm - the channel in the wood in the pics is 10mm wide. Looks like Pirata but for a male this is bigger than pretty much all the specie

Managed to get some good pics of this spider last night but then couldn't find it in my book. The body length is around 9mm - the channel in the wood in the pics is 10mm wide. Looks like Pirata but for a male this is bigger than pretty much all the species in my field guide. [Amended now an id has been provided, thanks]
