Quick guide to common spiders

I remember this one being quite small, maybe 20-30mm. There is only one image of this species yet. In the dark I had not realised it was a different species from the Isopoda vasta that normally turns up around here. It was just a 'place-holder' photograph so I would know a Huntsman had turned up that night and it wasn't until I got home that I saw the markings on the abdomen and legs. Now that I know it is there I will hunt for it again.
