Spider ID please


Is anyone able to identify this crab spider species please?

Recorded on Dandilion on a wet meadow / coastal location near Hartland North Devon.

    I see from the file name you've recognised it as a Xysticus and, as far as I'm concerned, that's as far as you can take it from a photo. It could be cristatus the commonest specie,s but it could be one of the others too, like kochi, bifasciatus etc. As the recent publication 'Britain's Spiders' says, microscopic examination is required for identification of all species in the genus.
