Butt-head

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Thursday, 12 April 2012 21:57

I swept this little money spider in the meadow at Woods Mill at lunch time. I had read that there are money spiders with strange shaped heads but I have not seen one until now. It was readily identifiable by a combination of its butt-shaped head and palps as Hypomma bituberculatum. Another very common spider I added to my list at Woods Mill today was Dictyna arundinacea. I end the day on 3856 species.

I recently saw some money spider heads in a book. They honestly either looked made up, or like some new marine invertebrate from another planet more than spiders.
