Unusual Spider?? near Southampton

Hello All,

A friend of mine became rather frightened having found spider on the attached photo outside her house. She said when it was disturbed, it got 'angry'....!


I've got quite a lot of research on common UK spiders and can't find anything similar. Can anybody help identify it?

    Hi Tom_RN,


    Hard to say from that photo but it could possibly be a tube web spider (Segestria species, possibly S. florentina)? They do seem to be established in that region, though I don't have any first hand experience of them.
