I found this spider (see attached photo) on a rotting log at Hatfield Moor nr Doncaster. Hatfield Moor is a former site of large scale peat extraction which is currently being restored and the log itself was lying on a bed of moist peat through which vegetation was beginning to reestablish itself.
I think that is a member of the Lycosidae family of spiders, but I do not know which species. I also assume that, because it appears to be carrying an egg sac in its spinnerets, that it is female. I would be grateful therefore, if you would identify the family, species and if possible the sex of this specimen.
