Baby Wolf Spider - Long & Thin - Arctosa littoralis

Baby Wolf Spider - Long & Thin - Arctosa littoralis
Tonopah Desert, Maricopa County, Arizona, USA
March 18, 2015
Size: 1mm Body - 3mm Legs
These are close up images of a baby Wolf Spider that I believe is a newborn Arctosa littoralis. Another is linked below. Both of them must be only a few days old, since the size of them is very tiny.
They were filmed together, in the early morning hours, in the kitchen sink, after a wind storm blew them in the window the night before.
Here is a link to the video with these spiders shown in it, at the beginning only and most of it is close ups of several flies that are shown afterwards: (just over 8min. total) - Baby Spiders & the Fly Party ♀♂
Here is a link to the other spiders image, for comparison:

We can't be sure of gender when they're this young. Male and female spiderlings are indistinguishable. Gender is dertermined by the presence of an epigynum in females or the development of a palpal organ on males.

 
Thanks
Laura, I understand that and if I can ever get microscopic views, I might try this again. Until then, I will have to observe much larger specimens. Yes, but a small dark, shiny ground spider (5mm total) is my target for today. They are very abundant during the daytime and very fast runners and I want to learn something about them also. Please send me a message or an email about them, if you know what I'm talking about, because I plan on capturing some very soon. Thanks!

 
Could be a lot of things ...
submit an image and we'll try to narrow it down for you. :)
