Spider - Segestria senoculata

Not from Cullaloe, but from my kitchen sink. Still interesting though, I hope. Back fresh from a spider workshop on Saturday I used my new-found techniques to play with this little guy, who appears to be new to NT19. It may also be the second record for Fife. Usual NBN caveats apply.

Ironically the only other record from Fife is one GC picked up at Cullaloe!A more sensible map from SRS features at the bottom. Clearly the Cullaloe record didn't come from SRS, and I'm inclined to think there's an issue here which may take some time to get to the bottom of.
