Thanks a lot! The genus name was enough :) I searched ID for this spider for months....

Yes, I think it's almost certainly L. cornutus although, whilst it's unlikely to be another Larinioides species (e.g. patagiatus, sclopetarius), I didn't want to rule them out completely.

Thank you, Alan, for ID! I searched and found that this is L, cornutus, it obtains in moist meadow near water, where I found this spider :)
