new spider in the garden ...

Found this in the ferns while looking for signs of  Psychoides filicivora. Not seen one like this before - possibly a Philodromus sp.... ?

Other hunting spiders seen recently include this Wolf Spider, see here with egg sac.


  1. Hi Howard
    Looks like Philodromus aureolus, but looking in the book some of this species are quite similar.
    all the best Mike

    1. Thanks Mike. I'd read that there were six species in the aureolus group so I've logged it as P. aureolus agg. Have to see what SEWBReCORD will accept.
