    is it a proper spider, looks like it only has two body segments?

     

    Apart from that i am lost, albino?

     

    Hope you only found one!

    It's a very fat and pale spider..............:P

     

    Sorry ,could not resist.

     

    It's probably not a huge risk to you - but treat with a little care.

     

    There are species of spider that have not even been discovered here yet!!!

     

    If you are careful - I'd try and get it into ventilated bottle.

    Call the Natural History museum and ask if they can help identify it.

     

    Might name it after you if not discovered......."Carolandcraigiusspiderus" ?

    how big is it? id kill it to be on the safe side, looks like a baby spider still with its egg shell or it could be a crab spider

     

    Clare, as you know it's actually a spider with a marshmellow for a hat:biglaugh:

    Its only small but i used the macro to enlarge it to give more chance of identification,

     

    i phoned the enviromentle health at the local council who are going to collect it and send it away for identification so hopefully will find out in the near future and will post up what it is for curiosities sake.
