Tegenaria gigantea

This spider (and several close relatives) is commonly called the 'house spider' in Britain. It builds a scruffy sheet web which, if left undisturbed, can become quite large. Males of the species can often be found in our baths or wandering about the house. They fall into baths accidentally when searching for females. These spiders can become quite large and the males often have a particularly large legspan.
