Artist's Description

Misidentification :

I apologise to everyone, I earlier misidentified this little guy as a Archemorus curtulus, the Bird Dung Mimicking Spider, had I read further in my very good reference book, The Silken Web, by Bert Simon-Brunet, 1994, I would have found that my subject is obviously a Two Spined Spider.

What tricked me was the description of the way Archemorus curtulus tightly hold their legs to their body while they wait for prey and the fact he hadn’t moved position in two days …

This highlights the dangers of an amateur identifying such critters and I’ll be more careful in future.
