Jumping Spider

Pseudeuophrys lanigera

Description:

Males reach a body length of three to four millimeters, with females up to five mm. This species is very similar to Pseudeuophrys erratica, which is rarer and found below the bark of trees on forest fringes. As P. lanigera is mostly found inside buildings, adults can be found even in deep winter. It is better suited to the dry climate of modern concrete architecture than other salticids in the area like Salticus scenicus. Adults can be found the whole year.[1]

Notes:

2-3mm in size found again in the three metre wide concrete ally, red brick floors pretty damp environment.

The ID is just a suggestion though I think that's what it is. Best of luck with the spider photography. I'm grappling with this myself and appreciate the problems. Salticids don't stop moving for long, but occasionally they look up at you which can make for a cute shot.

thanks for the i.d Alan Thornhill, there are a few different species of jumpers in little micro-yard, but they are so evasive with such a large lens compared to the spider but I am determined to photograph them!!
