    Identified tentatively as Cetratus rubropunctatus by Rob Whyte (thanks, Rob). A juvenile, so difficlt to ID from an image. I can't find this name on BBird - has there been a change?

    "In his 1970 booklet Mascord presented this spider as Hedana valida but in 2014 P. Szymkowiak in Annales of Zoologici Warszawa, Volume 64, pages 333-477, stated it should now be shown as a Cetratus rubropunctatus."

    Thanks, Daniel. I didn't realise that these two names referred to the same spider.
