Tiny White and Black Spider with Two Horns - Micrathena mitrata

Tiny White and Black Spider with Two Horns - Micrathena mitrata
Lake Monticello, Fluvanna County, Virginia, USA
August 29, 2015
Size: really tiny
The white on this bug stood out greatly as we saw it on a contrasting background on our porch. Got macro photos and checked out your site and Bing and Google images files, but can't seem to find one like it. Have checked both of my insect books also. Would love to know what kind it is. We like to keep track of things that we get to see and learn about here in our little acre of woods. Thanks to anybody that can help. Donna
