Hello frv,

seems to be a female Mangora acalypha

Hello FRV,

I am not guessing because i actually study spiders. However, i am only concerned with spiders of Germany. I do not know about spiders of France. I am not a global expert or an expert at all. I just like to identify and document spiders. I am not German either but Germany is my home now. I have documented Mangora and i believe that the habitus is quite distinct but we are back at the "i am not an expert" point-of-view.

I think that France only has Mangora acalypha and nothing similar but i do not live there.

I've attached a small sample of my own work with a female Mangora acalypha for reference.

Best wishes,

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
