The species looks like Hasarius adansoni to me. I've recorded this species in Leeds (Tropical World) and it is a species that is recorded/ observed in hot-houses and other artificial heated environments worldwide.
I've never seen one of these spiders before and to be honest would have preferred not to have had one in my kitchen :)
Kind regards Andrea

Thanks for any help you can give me
Saw this salticid today. I think it's Salticus cingulatus as it doesn't have the strong abdominal markings of S. scenicus and it resembles this photograph . What do you think? I attach one of the better photos I got.
I am undertaking a research project investigating the ecology of two saltmarsh and UK BAP spiders, Baryphyma duffeyi and Arctosa fulvolineata. If readers could e-mail me (Richard.Wilson_ecology@yahoo.co.uk) with any information based on personal experience of these species or make me aware of grey or scientific literature that deals with their ecology or distribution (UK or European), I would be most grateful.
Please note however, that I would need this information to be available in sufficient time for me to include it in the report which has a deadline of early February 2012.
Many thanks in anticipation
Richard Wilson (AO for Yorkshire)
