Can you see the invisible spider?

This is the Invisible Spider Drapetisca socialis, it's quite a common spider on tree trunks. I tend to see it on trees with smoother bark like this Ash or Beech. I was at Ditchling Beacon today repeating some fixed-point photography. I did get one tick, the unremarkable snail known as the Lesser Bulin Ena obscura which was also at rest on a tree trunk.

Perhaps the most surprising thing though was a very late and very tatty Silver-spotted Skipper nectaring on Devil's-bit Scabious.
