I think this is Zygiella minima but a second opinion is welcome.
Spider found in Tenerife, Icod de los Vinos. 04-03-2019

Ciao Johan,
I think rather Leviellus.

Greetings.

Hello,

I can't find any Leviellus in the lists of the Canary Islands.

Best regards

I'm not sure if this is Z. minima, even if there are no other members of Zygiellinae mentioned from the Canary Islands/Tenerife. The middle part of the abdominal stripe has a very clear-cut outline, something which seems to be missing in most Z. minima (https://forum.arages.de/index.php?topic=26429.0, https://www.biolib.cz/en/image/id340715/, https://arachno.piwigo.com/picture?/26846/category/1820-zygiella_minima).

I would be more optimistic: even Schmidt states (sub Zygiella canariensis) that the species is very variable in the coloration of its opisthosoma. And at least one of Pierre's specimens matches Johan's pictures quite well: https://arachno.piwigo.com/picture?/39748/category/1820-zygiella_minima , wouldn't you say?
Best wishes,
Rainer

Ok, but just because of Pierre's second picture of a female which I seem to have missed, not because of Schmidt's statement.  :P
