Another bug from Capetown? (by Tony Sims)
This is http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/thread/9830
I'm no expert on S.A. spiders or any spiders at all but I guess the folks at http://www.ispot.org.za/node/175339 are so it looks very likely to be a "Silver Vleispiders (Leucauge sp) (see also http://www.ispot.org.za/node/180407 )
These ispots gave a link to http://www.arc.agric.za/vmuseum/vmuseumMain.aspx , where clicking on the 'common name' box to select silver vlei-spider gives a whole set from which it appears ours is Leucauge festiva.
(& it seems another view at http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/16088102
