Philodromus dispar (Walckenaer, 1826)
A fairly common spider of low vegetation. Markings and colouration on this species are variable and Philodromus dispar is very similar to Philodromus aureolus, but the abdomen tends to be slightly longer, so care has to be taken with any identification. We regularly recorded this spider from our own garden, with juveniles often appearing indoors.
