Spider day, 27th June

Miraculously a sunny day on Saturday allowed us to sweep like maniacs across the reserve in between days of rain and sodden vegetation. At least a couple of new species were added to the reserve list, with Tetragnatha montana being added to its more common cousin T.extensa. Also after finding many immature Clubionid spiders this year finally an adult male "took one for the team" to get the species on the list - see below. I think we have one more mature female which may or may not turn out to be not this species.

Still in pots are various spider, pseudoscorpions, harvestmen, a millipede.

Clubiona lutescens - 1 m. adult
Tetragnatha extensa - several
Metallina mengei - several
Enoplognatha ovata - several
Xysticus cristatus (probably? I had no adults when checked)
Paidiscura (Theridion) pallens - 1 with egg puch under oak leaf in woodland
Philodromus aureolus - one mature f. swept from meadow grass. These things are FAST.
Linyphiids - several potted for later examination
