This was on my bathroom wall. any idea what it is? It had very short legs and was only about 3mm long - maybe a baby of a larger species?? The markings are quite pretty.
I think this is Pseudophrys lanigera, the Death Monster ( I think someone was having a bit of a joke with the Latin there. Unless a Greenfly wrote it of course ).
Thank you so much, it does look very like the Internet pictures of L. lanigera. The only British jumping spider I've seen before now is the common Zebra spider.
I was sort of hoping it was a jumping spider, they are so "cute" - except as you say to greenfly - so that's really nice.
"Death monster" eh? Couldn't resist wasting a little time this evening doing a bit of drawing (there don't seem to be many "greenfly" cartoons online!)
