Please can anyone identify this spider which we found in our garden at the weekend?
It looks like a Meta species. M.menardi is the more common of the two species but it likes dark places. Where in your garden did you find it?
We found it on the wall in our back garden, just next to the patio doors. It was early evening and a few feet from a large lavender bush.
Interesting, although I think it must have have originated from somewhere dark. They seem to crop up quite often on forums and so they're probably not as rare as we used to think. However, it's not possible to say which species it is from the photo.
Many thanks for your help.
