Default What kind of spider is this?

Hello everyone!
While being at the beach yesterday my kids found a pair of spiders. I found them to be special, and I would love to know their name.

This forum is full of knowledge so I thought I should give it a try.

If this were in America, I would guess it a Lycosid (Wolf Spider) of some sort, but I have no idea what else there might be in Europe. I suggest you post it in the Coseup Forum - there is a Swedish contributor (Torgny) who is quite knowledgeable and might be of help. Or you could PM him a link to this thread and ask him to take a look. There is also another in Spain (Carlogalliani) who has a wealth of knowledge of European creepy-crawlies.

I have no idea what type of spider it could be, I shiver when I see one. But it's a neat shot and I love how it is barely visible in the sand.

Penolta: you are correct...I have now found out what kind of spider it is and it is a kind of wolf spider . It is commonly known as a big sand spider and it has become quite active in my parts of Sweden...unfortunately ;(

Tanks mtngal the picture itself had been better if I haven't had trouble with my autofocus as of late. But I believe that I have now fixed the problem (see the medieval pics in another thread)
