I saw this rather colourful little spider on spring flowers ,in the hills behind Tavira in the Eastern Algarve region of Portugal .
Hopefully somebody can help with an ID ,it was approx 10-12mm including the legs.
My first thought was Anelosimus vittatus, and pictures on the web look a reasonable match but I'm far from sure. Might be worth checking other theridiids, - would do myself but I've got to take the wife shopping now.
Thankyou that looks spot on .
