Giant House Spider

Tegenaria Duellica

Description:

Body approx 12mm long, whole spider approx 34mm span (with legs bent). Mid brown colour with hairy body and legs and large pedipalps. Fast moving.

Houses and outbuildings in the UK

Notes:

This is a smallish size one - the biggest I've seen won't fit under a pint glass when you want to put them out of the house. Luckily this one was already outside.
