Hello,
Is this spider a Thanatus specimen?
Few possibilities to identify the species, right?
Thanks.

Thanks Simeon.
This has a different pattern from that of the spider posted a few days ago. What a pity not to be able to get to the species.  :-\

Is it a young specimen?

The impression is of an adult male. Thanatus vulgaris and Thanatus atratus have a similar habitus as adult males

Among the Italic species of Thanatus it looks very much like vulgaris, in truth.

Unfortunately (and oddly enough) I don't have photos of the palps.
