Moved to genus Mallos (Dictynidae)
Moved from Spiders. I recently saw some male Mallos and remembered your shots. I think this is a mating pair, so the female and male are likely the same species, whatever that may be (I wouldn't know without an exam of some under a microscope). Here's another example of a male: http://aces.nmsu.edu/academics/spiders/arid/images/Dictynidae%20Mallos%20dugesi%20.jpg

 
Excellent
Thanks so much!
