Another spider from Malta => Ariadna sp.

This was very small around 5mm.
Have no idea what it is.
I captured this and put it in alcohol.

Looks like some young Segestriidae, maybe Ariadna sp.

Many thanks Michael
It seems as if you are right as I put it on an Italian forum and have been told that it is Ariadna insidiatrix.

I wrote it in your pm already, but I think there are at leat 3 species of this genus in the greek region and maybe more in Malta. Wunderlich published a revision of this genus last year. The species are also included in the SpiE.

Could you write that in the italian forum please? There are also new species in the italian region.
