However you will never be sure without microscopical examiation of an adult.
This is my first posting here - I have been into trying to id spiders for the last year - so I am a novice - however I thought the attached spider might be worth sharing and seeing what any expert opinion might be. It was found at Burnham Overy Dunes in North Norfolk part of Holkham NNR on 25th May 2015. Species that are common in the general area where I found this are Pardosa monticola, Pardosa palustris, Pardosa prativaga, Xerolycosa miniata and Alopecosa pulverulenta and it did n't seem to fit any of those - although it does show traits of P.monticola and X.miniata. I have shown this to the Norfolk spider recorder and also posted it on another facebook forum with no concrete suggestions. Unfortunately I did not keep the specimen as at the time I thought it looked so distinctive it would be easily identifiable from a book. So would it be a variant of one of the previous species ?
I looked through the Recording Scheme's Philodromus options and am not satisfied that I can match this little critter under any of the specimens with photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/130432473@N02/18804818858/
It was sited and captured briefly in my back garden, which has some roses, lots of bramble and a small maple along with some other bushes and plants I have yet to familiarize myself with though most of the running crab spiders I see are on the bramble or in the rose bushes. Post code for the neighborhood is B5 7XG. Again any help or guidance is much appreciated. Cheers, Sara
Hello, I believe this to be a priate spider feeding on an orb weaver, but have been finding it rather difficult to narrow down what type of Pirate Spider it is via internet searches. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
The photo was taken early June 2015 near the Birmingham Airport in the West Midlands. This is also likely my best photograph since I had a bus to catch and my time as rather limited. I am not sure what the post code is at the bus stop but the nearby rugby clubhouse, Birmingham Exiles RFC is B26 3QS and it's about 50-60 meters away from the stop.

We have some questions regarding our resident office spider, she's been with us around 3 weeks in the hinge of the door.
Is this who we think it is? A Noble False Widow? Please can you identify her?
Has she shed her skin?
And - what should we do - she seems to have LOTS of eggs.
IF YOU WANT HELP WITH IDENTIFICATION, YOU ALSO NEED TO PLEASE PROVIDE A FULL POSTCODE OR GRID REFERENCE FOR YOUR SPIDER AND DATE.
is this spider dangerous?
Also, I have only just discovered your website. I have a number of other pictures of spiders (with date and location) which I have attempted to identify over the last few years. Would it be of interest for me to upload those as well?
