I work for Pond Conservation and this week we have a stall at Gardener's World Live at the NEC in Birmingham. A member of the public bought a spider into the charity area today (16/06/2012) and asked if anyone could help identify it as she had found it on her head. I was pretty sure I recognised it and bought it home with me to look at it more closely. I think it is Philaeus chrysops would someone be able to confirm this for me from the photo and perhaps tell me a little more about this rather beautiful jumping spider.
Sorry that the picture is not better quality - it wouldn't stay still :)
