It is not difficult to see why this spider is called a Ladybird spider. The male spider has a red spotted abdomen, while the female is significantly bigger and black in colour.

Sadly, the spider is incredibly rare, in fact it is the rarest spider in Britain and is officially listed as endangered and protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act. "The extinction of this beautiful spider would be a tragic loss to the UK's wildlife," say conservation group Buglife.

What the heck? scratch

Anyone know what family that's in?

Wait, nevermind: Found the genus article on Wikipedia. Looks like they're in family Eresidae, the velvet spiders.

That's awesome, though! I've never seen anything like it. Looks kinda like a cross between a T and a jumping spider.
