Simitidion sp.

    Family - Theridiidae
    Genus - Simitidion
    I thought this Spider was Lepthyphantes sp.
    I sent these photo's to Peter Harvey of the BAS.
    ''not Lepthyphantes, a theridiid, probably Simitidion
    (used to be Theridionsimile, from legs looks as though may be
    juvenile and pattern is variable so can't be absolutely sure, but shape
    and carapace colour suggests this. I can see why you thought
    Lepthyphantes though'.
