Neospintharus With Egg Case - Rhomphaea projiciens
Montrose, Laurens County, Georgia, USA August 16, 2010
I suspect this to be Neospintharus, although I am not entirely sure since all I have seen before were rather lighter in color. As well, I am not sure if this is a female as I have little enough experience with this kind of spider. I note the palps seem a bit more enlarged at the ends than would be "normal" in other female spiders. Is this correct or am I just that inexperienced?
