Comments & ID Thoughts

I think it is the wood lice hunter as we do have a lot of wood lice around the outside and a few have been known to get it , but I have never seen this type of spider in the house in all my 45 years

Hi, see above image for ID. 🙂

Probably. It’s something in the genus Dysdera which includes the Woodlouse Hunter Dysdera crocata. Another similar species in the vicinity is Dysdera erythrina and I don’t think I can reliably tell the two apart.
