2 dark lateral bands flank a pale yellow-brown median band on carapace with 2 dark spots behind the eyes. Outer edges contain small pale streaks. Abdomen is pale yellow with 2 distinctive forward pointing dark arrows. Legs are yellow-brown with dark marks sometimes amounting to annulations.
.
Two out of the 3 species are so rare and have such limited distribution that Naturespot website claims only one U.K. species. There are actually 3 in the good book.
.
Sabina - recent addition (2014) to U.K. and very much limited to neglected urban areas in London - not that!
.
Numida - arrived even later (2017) - limited to even smaller area (2 nature reserves) in London AND it doesn’t appear until November - not that either!

Leaving Anyphaena accentuata.
