AlanThornhill Unknown spotting

It looks a bit like the Cheiracanthium species we have in the UK, so I would guess Clubionidae. It's not Oxyopidae.

The link I gave shows the diffrence between Aculpeira and Neoscona

It's usually, though not always, found very close to water and can be quite numerous where it occurs.

OK Robin, I've changed the link to my Flickr photostream.

Hello Robin. I'm not certain. I suspect Lyssomanes is correct but several species live in Mexico and I don't know how to tell them apart from a photo, or even if you can.

Incredibly spiny. I wonder how it avoids poking its own eyes out?

AlanThornhill Haplodrassus signifer?
Haplodrassus signifer? commented on by AlanThornhill High Peak, England, United Kingdom7 years ago

It's some sort of gnaphosid but I wouldn't like to say which. Definitely not a wolf spider.

AlanThornhill Hover Fly
Hover Fly commented on by AlanThornhill North Norfolk, England, United Kingdom7 years ago

This is a fly, most likely a hoverfly, not a bee. I can't help beyond that - maybe this guide can help with an ID.

I'm willing to believe it's not Hogna, that was just a suggestion, but I can't be convinced that it's Trochosa ruricola. The markings on the legs and abdomen and the length of the legs are wrong, in my opinion.
