Moved from Ghost Spiders. Nice one!

Anyphaena pectorosa
Nice find -- this is Anyphaena pectorosa (see Dondale & Redner 1982), one of those northeastern species that Rod would not usually come across.

Pictures later. New BG species, isn't it?

P.S. -- Here's a similar specimen, photgraphed by Tanasevitch: Anyphaena pectorosa L.Koch, 1866

Hibana maybe
Rod Crawford says: The only anyphanenid this looks like is Aysha (Hibana). A. gracilis is the only Aysha recorded from Indiana. But this looks pretty unlike published figures of gracilis, epigynum-wise.

I'm sending both of these to Kevin, so hopefully we'll know more once he looks at them.
