Spider eggs under pine bark 4/24

Spider eggs under pine bark 4/24
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
April 24, 2012
Size: Maybe around 25 mm?
Our pine trees have loose flaky bark. My neighbor was doing some yard work and this piece of bark fell off, exposing this spider egg sac.

Probably Philodromidae (Running Crab Spiders), maybe Philodromus?

Moved
Moved from Spiders. Any luck raising these?

 
I think
it's an adult now. :-)
Not much going on in the palps, they look like sock puppets.

 
Still going well
It ate several fruit flies a couple of nights ago. I added 3 shots from a month ago (I think my most recent).

 
Good to hear!
nice work raising it. Does it catch the fruit flies?

 
Like lightning
it races over and grabs them before I can even shut the lid. BTW - I use mutated flies so they are wingless sitting ducks. Sprinkle 'em in like using a salt shaker.

 
nothing like a few mutated flies
to feed your spiderlings. No wonder I have such a hard time!
