  2. From 5 mins of googling and looking at a few pics there seems to be 2 species described as red wood spiders, one a large red spider resembeling araneus diadematus, another is a sort of Gnaphosid that does not build webs but instead hnts on the ground and supposedly gets 2 inch legs spans (suspect)
