Nigma puella

    Family : Dictynidae 
    Genus : Nigma
    I am very happy to have found this Species. Quite uncommon.
    I walked right upto it. 'Very locally distributed in the South of England and 
    Wales. Apparently rare or absent from the rest of the region but recorded
    from Southern Europe, Canaries and Madeira' : Source - Collins Field Guide 
    to Spiders of Britain and Northern Europe by Michael J. Roberts.

    Juvenile - about 1.5mm in size!
    The King's Head
    East Hoathly
    East Sussex
