Weird Clear Spider - Mimetus puritanus

Weird Clear Spider - Mimetus puritanus
Chicago, Illinois, USA
July 1, 2006
Size: 4mm body
This white(almost clear) spider was found at work. It has weird white liquid and red dots in the back. Under a microscope the white area seems to ebb and flow, almost like it's abdomen is clear and the white is blood or digestive meterial.

Any information on an ID would be much appricated.
