Visually it looks like a Damoetas species and doesn't have the "brushes" on the front legs of other closely related genus - but the size should be no more than 3mm

Hi Michael, the overall size was just over 12mm. 3mm is smaller than a typical matchhead and the spider was significantly larger than that. I wasn't able to identify the spider in the literature I have so thanks for your efforts. Tim

Thanks Tim - I am now stumped - but someone else may be able to help
