Yes I have seen it, but "only" through my camera. I love to photographers, but are not very aware of what I'm photographers. You are probably right, I just want to ask on a Danish forum for insects.

xysticus cristatus has more rounder body than this one. This spider gives away its name by his nest if I am not mistaken. But of course you have a better judgment for you've seen it in real.

it looks like a female sosippus mimus. I can tell it by its palp. Male palp has bigger one. The male palp is used to suck up sperm into the bulb, then pumps sperm out into the females body during mating. But if this species it right, I salute her, I am waiting to see her! Half of is palp is missing if you noticed it. This one amazed me more than tarantulas if i am right. I you have more pics on different angle pls up-load it if that's ok. Thank you.
