I 've found this spider in dry heathland with here and there a pine tree.
Location : Belgium, Lommel

I think this is Philodromus collinus but a second opinion is welcome.

Best regards

This is how often Philodromus aureolus looks like but I have had a buchari specimen with a similar colouration - exactly from pine trees. I suppose that, on pine trees, specimens of different species are often darker.

Thank you for your answer Simeon.
I don't think it is P. buchari because they did an inventarisation of that area last 2 months. It's gonna be a solar park and lot of biologists have helped so I think the list they made is almost complete and P. buchari is not on that list.
So I think Philodromus aureolus is a better choice for this one.

Best regards.
