The Winter Resident

This is a fabulous male Zoropsis spinimana from this morning that came knocking at the door. They come into the house a lot in winter, looking for females and a more conducive temperature to live in. I put him in the boot-room (after a couple of photos) where I saw a big fat mama amongst the wellies earlier this week. Hopefully they will scare the girls all winter but also make lots more pest controllers :)

Found this little chap in a rose head this afternoon. Looks like a common garden spider of some sort, but is about 10mm across. Edit: 'think' it's a buzzing spider. Please if anyone knows different, let me know!

Only just saw you asked for an ID with this one, @RichardC - this is a Philodromidae species, a running crab spider :)

This fellow came into our house today, I guess to get out of the smoke.
Hopefully it will stay long enough to get a few more shots in

No time to do a proper shot, but this male was in my breeze way. Will have to look up the Latin name but I think it's common name is NW wood spider. This male is about 2"across with a body about 3/4 of an inch. The females I've seen are much larger (perhaps 1 1/2" on the abdomen. Never show signs of aggression. Believe to be a member of the Callobius family, perhaps severus.

Looks very similar to the Huntsman we get indoors
