Spider Identification ? Anyone? pretty please

I took this photograph in north wales, I have no idea what type of spider it is but would really like to know what it is. I sent the photo to UK safari websie and they tol me it was a nursery web spider but it bares no resemblence. It is much bigger and plumper. It is also a very light brown / beige colour.

If anyone could identifie it (lord knows ive tried!!) i would be extreeeeemly grateful. I cannot find anything that looks similar.


Thanks guys!

    I perhaps wouldn't be so quick to rule out Pisaura Mirabilis...they do vary in colour & contrast of their markings, quite a bit. Females can grow to 15mm body length. The stripe down the body & serrated pattern on the flanks of the abdomen make this a very possible candidate for your photo.


    They can be pretty impressive and appear to often be assumed as a non-native species by those stumbling accross them for the first time...that was certainly my first experience at any rate! ;-).
