Unidentified Spiders

    These are Spiders that I have not been able to identify or cannot be sure
    of by using the Collins Guide,
    or am unsure of. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

     Zelotes sp. ?
    Brighton & Preston Cemetery

    Unusual Crab Spider
    Ozyptila sp. perhaps?
    Brighton, East Sussex
    My friend Janet Henbane sent me this Photograph of a rather large
    looking Spider that she found in an imported box of Vegetables.
    I sent the image to Peter Harvey of the British Arachnological Society.
    "... may be a large lycosid Lycosa (L. fabrilis is our only British species,
    but it would not be this) or possible a Zoropsis. Either would probably
    originate from southern Europe".
    Living in detritus / leaf litter at the foot of a tree.
    Stoneywish Nature Reserve
    Ditchling, East Sussex
    A Peruvian Spider.
    Photo by Robert Manson.
    Sheetweb with a tapered funnel on "a clump of grass-like vegetation.
    It was in Cloud Forest at about 2,700 metres.
    It was about 2 to 3 inches" in size.
    Inca Trail, Winay Wayna, Peru.

    Theridion sp. I think
    Same as above, with hatched Spiderlings.
    Brighton Extra Mural Cemetery
    I found this Spider living in a long sac,
    under a clump of fallen moss, in the shadow of the
    roots of an upturned tree in the copse along the edge
    of the Heath.
    Kings Standing, Ashdown Forest
    Agelenatea redii, or possibly Araneus (Atea) sturmi
    Many thanks to Peter Harvey of the British Arachnological
    Society Spider Recording Scheme for his advice with this Spider.
