I found some 10 specimens of strange spiders but I really do not have any time for investigating. Once I saw a photo of Agriope bruennichi and I recall that it hade a smaller and narrower abdomen.

I have a feeling that the other long-legged spider is featured on the fauna page of my website.

Sorry for the late reply and great photos btw!
:P
