This is one of the tiny ‘Money Spiders’ which you may sometimes find tickling your face or crawling on your arm. Very hard to identify unless you get your microscope out.

Rear garden, Staffordshire, England. July 2017.

  1. The top fella has delightfully dainty legs! I’m horrified to think I might accidentally squish one. Spider beware of lumbering humans!

    1. Lol! I think he was preparing a line for his parachute. These things love to float through the air and land you. Good job they are not the size of elephants, eh? šŸ™‚

      1. Haha, yes … thankfully petite! But…. people say Australia has scary critters – if I’m landed by one of these my neighbours would hear the scream.
