Lethargic spider found on pavement on the way to work. Any ideas what kind of spider it is ? Thanks.

I think it's a house spider. Probably cold because not indoors.

Nah, 'snot a house spider.  They're bigger and hairier with a chequered abdomen.  Like this:

Dunno what, offhand though.  Maybe a money spider, in view of what it appears to be carrying? 

Brill photo btw!

 PS

Can't see it on that page you linked to Dove.  I do like the photo of the Invisible Spider, though!

Mouse spider looks the best fit so far - I've never heard to them. Is the abdomen hairy enough ...

Hi Alan, Looked at the link. The head seems too wide for my spider, however It is a great link and the site provides ID's of spiders - I think I will register with them to get the experts to take a look.

Thanks jo47 - spider would have been squashed underfoot! Family think I'm mad - nothing new there

I stop on the road to pick up lost and wandering earthworms. My family keep walking and pretend that I'm not with them.

Maybe they have early onset earthworm dementia.

I had a music teacher with greenish fangs....

Registered with the link Alan provided - britishspiders.org but waiting for 'authorisation'

 You are the only experts on the case atm.

Going to check out your link now, Dove

Well, I have had my eyes opened to a cast array of spiders I nver knew existed. They are definitely the right shape and have hair like mine too. This one looks very similar...

No green fangs...might have been the lights.

Well Tetley - I am in Essex/Greater London, so location is good...also says the jaws reflect green which was commented on in my first photo...I think you could be right, it all seems to fit.

Thank you very much Pansy and everyone else for all your input
