I don't think this is a Trochosa. Maybe Hogna radiata?

It's some sort of jumping spider. The markings on the abdomen and the legs are like those of Ballus chalybeius, which is not a common species. Can you get a better picture?

Most likely S. scenicus

I don't think it's T. domestica - that tends to be smaller and paler than the likes of gigantea (duellica), atrica, saeva.

It's not a crab spider. It looks more like a wolf spider.

There are a few similar species resembling the spider in the picture but I think the one suggested above is the most likely.

I would guess it's an agelenid, but wouldn't like to say which. Barronopsis? Hololena?
