Wow, a new spider for my research, and he's an adult too.  :D

On site, due to the reflections of the sun, and before downloading the photos I thought it was a female of Bianor albobimaculatus, I had already found there specimens of both sexes of the latter species in the previous days.
But seeing the photos on the pc I immediately noticed that many things did not add up.

Thanks Simeon.  ;)
