Spiderlings - Pisaurina mira

Spiderlings - Pisaurina mira
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA
June 23, 2011
These babies were nestled in the leaves of Purple Coneflower. I know that genus/species id is impossible, since I never saw an adult nearby, but is it possible to tell what family they might be in? I'd appreciate any suggestions more specific than "spiders". Thanks!

Moved from Spiders.

Feels like we're looking at Pisaurina mira

 
Perfect!
I have pictures of a female and of what I think may be a male Pisaurina mira taken two days after this photo, but I didn't want to make any assumptions since I didn't see them on the same plant as the babies. Thanks!

 
Testing us, eh?
Glad we passed!
