Marpissa muscosa (Clerck, 1757)  
Unexpectedly found new to Nottinghamshire in 2023, when two specimens were found on fences at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust's Misson Carr NR in September by Nick and Samantha Brownley, who very kindly provided the photographs illustrating the spider below. Largely a south-easterly species in the UK, though it has been reported to be moving northwards.
