I found this spider in Oslo, Norway. It looked unusual to me and I have not seen a spider like this before, however, I am not native to Norway so perhaps it is not that unusual here.
It was found indoors this evening, sitting on the ceiling. When I tried to move it, it seemed to play dead. The body is approx. 1 cm long. The legs are striped black and Orange/Brown. The underside is mostly dark brown/black with two white spots on the abdomen.
