Moved from Ghelna.

Ghelna sp.
Ben, I just got the Massachusetts list of Salticids from Dick Walton, and the only species of Ghelna listed was canadensis.

I think it would be safe to move it there for now. It does seem to be the default northern representative. If you find more, maybe we should send some specimens to Kevin.

If I find another one of these, I'll definitely save it for Kevin. Thanks for the help Ben!

Ghelna canadensis?
Best guess for this right now is Ghelna canadensis, a terrestrial dendryphantine, but I'm not certain yet. Compare to this individual from Maryland:

Ghelna canadensis?
That would be nice to get the female represented. And it looks like a good match with the Maryland one.

I'll try and get a confirmation first.
