The first of my problem spiders was found on a web stretched across the curled leaf of a sycamore. It was green with yellow stripes along the sides of its abdomen with 4 small black spots on top. The legs were short with thorn like hairs. I feel fairly sure that this is Araniella cucurbitina.
The second spider pictured below is a bit more problematical
Three took up residence in our compost bin, where
was an abundance of fruit flies. One of them unfortunately met its demise when I opened the bin lid. The second disappeared. The third seemed to settle in and produced an egg mass encased in a blue/green shell. It seemed to have the remains of another sipder bound up under it which it seemed to guard closely, covering it with its body. The legs seemed long and glass like, the abomen green with black spots. Could this be a Comb Footed Spider, Enoplognatha ovata. Its appears to be the wrong colour and the situation it has taken up residence out of character.
I would appreciate any commments and I.D., for these two.
