  • Tegenaria?

    I just this second foud this young male spider on my wall upstairs.
    I dont have film in my camera so had to use my camera phone with camera lens in front to get this close up.

    Its about 40mm across, has a brown marked abdomen, and the palps have an upward pointing spike on each one.

    More likely to be Amaurobidiidae IMO, maybe A. similis?

      And I thought the only spider to be found in the home was a Tegenaria!

                    I agree with Guy - it's an adult male Amaurobius similis. It a very common house spider which produces a mesh web of bluish white silk, often on outside window sills.

                      Thanks Richard.

                      Theres another spider in our kitchen, much smaller and I cant get a close up view of it yet-tho my other half calls him George!

                      He has made a web like that of a Garden Spider(Araneus) yet he's indoors!

                        Hi Larry,
                        That one will almost certainly be Zygiella x-notata. One of the few orb-weavers which is active in winter, and common on buildings. Does the web have a sector missing (i.e. always looks unfinnished with missing 'spokes')?

                          Thanks Richard.
                          Not sure about the web as it was hard to see where it was placed, plus I had to disturb it to get a closer look.
                          I noticed its abdomen had markings on it similar to that of an Araneus.

                          (Ignore the white blob in this poor pic, thats some dust)



                          I so need a decent digi camera!

                            I believe this little fellow is one of its babies, yet I thought the adult was male!



                            And you know, having googled Zygiella x-notata, I have to say it does look like that!
