please could any one identify this spider i played with it for a while taking pictures then returned it back to the fence panel I got it from, size wise it was about the size of a finger nail.
Lepthyphantes minutus would be my best guess. It's normally found on tree trunks, but I guess a fence isn't that different. (In legspan L.m. might be the size of a fingernail, but not in body length). It's not a false widow.
