Could anyone kindly offer any suggestions regarding what this large spider is?
The spider was found whilst demolishing an old shed in my garden in West Oxfordshire last week.
I suspect it is a hobo spider (Eratigena agrestis) however I am unsure due to the incredible coloration of the opisthosoma. Apologies for the poor quality of the images, the spider was fast moving and did not like the camera getting close for a macro.
The wooden plank it is sitting on is around 5 inches wide.
Many thanks for your time,
