I took the following picture of this spider in northern Switzerland (alt: ~700m) with macro flash/lense.

Thanks for the comments, it was taken without tripod, then I was a bit lucky to got it in the focus range. –  ruffp Jun 3 at 20:42
    
But anyway, nobody here seems to know what it is... –  ruffp Jun 6 at 22:32
