This one later made an appearance. It was a first for the reserve so that was a bonus. I've only seen them once before on my holiday to Cornwall so it's good to get them closer to home. Now if only I could get them on my front door.

208 Pirata piraticus This genus is easy enough to recognise in the field because of the Y-shaped mark on the cephalothorax but identification to species requires a bit more care, this is the commonest of the genus
