    7. Comment on Zodariid ant spider yesterday
      I am aware how little info there is .The images I looked at and compared the leg colouring pattern and found them to be very close to your entry are from Storena Formosa and Storena maculata.
      You might have the info I am attaching but if not there are 4 images of spiders in genus Storena
