i know exactly what spider that is
It is a florinda spider hence the light brown legs and dark brown fangs common in the uk and usa. They commonly form in groups in places with a lot of trees or shade. They hide in grass and colonize during the fall or spring.they are not dangerous to people or pets but are annoying pests. I hope this helped.

Moved from Spiders.

Moving to family page for now...

Here are two to begin with
See if you think it is either of them
Ceraticelus or Florinda

In all honesty
I can not tell which is closer to mine. I bow to the conclusions of others, lol.


adult female, if you can visit her regularly,
might get the egg case.

I will never be able to locate this spider again. Thanks for the input.
