Comments & ID Thoughts

I found this spider in a log of vermiculite which I bought from a pet shop for my pet snake. It was in what looked like an egg or possible a tangle of web.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 If I’m seeing it right this looks like it might be a Wall Spider – possibly Uroctea durandi, which is Mediterranean in origin and not native to the UK.
