    Histricostoma argenteolunulatum male, one of only two or three specimens ever seen in the UK.

    Running Crab Spider, Philodromus dispar, sadly it lived up to its name all too well.

    Ant Woodlouse, Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi, you can see these in Lasius Flavus nests, the trick is to put a small piece of wood nearby and they will be under it a few days later, with loads of ants of course, get prepared as the ants will sting you after a little while.

    I was looking - without success for bees - when I found this on me so I put it on a leaf and photographed it.

    Common Froghopper, Philaenus spumarius

    Nice set Dave, particularly like the ants, they are tricky at the best of times.
