Leafcurling sac spider, and the white-legged snake millipede.

Paul Iddon

Clubiona, commonly known as Leaf-curling Sac Spiders, is a genus of spiders in the family Clubionidae (Clubiona comta). Here we have a female sat on the variegated laurel.

Then we have this wonderfully tightly wound white-legged snake millipede, which has for some reason managed to grip a strand of moss inside her curled body! It is the most familiar millipede, the cylindrical Tachypodoiulus species (Scientific name: Tachypodoiulus niger). These have around 100 legs!
