Found about 50 of these large shiny black spiders in one derelict concrete WW2 German bunker in Normandy.
Approx 3 cm across including legs.
Teardrop shaped body similar to black widows. Little or no obvious webs. Each spider was spaced apart by approx 1 metre around the borders between the walls and ceiling - one was sitting on top of an old water pipe.
