Phaeocedus braccatus

    Family - Gnaphosidae
    Genus - Phaeocedus
    Single UK species.
    A new find for me! It's a Male Phaeocedus braccatus
    He found me, noticed him crawling on my arm.
    I thought he was an Ant at first. Quite a rare Spider.

    Confirmed by Peter Harvey of the British Arachnological Society.
    Cuckmere Haven
