The spinnerets appear to match Euagrus, and it does not seem to have the sclerotized cuticle on the abdomen that characterizes Mecicobothriidae. I am wondering about the palps, because they look a bit like they may be a penultimate male, and yet this spider is way smaller than the other Euagrus I've seen, so maybe it is just a youngster. So far it has not taken any food, so I don't know if I can raise it to maturity.
