Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA March 4, 2015 Size: .75 mm
This gorgeous spider was living in leaf litter under a sand live oak tree. Six of its eight eyes looked liked diamonds surrounded by sapphires. The most forward pointing eyes were jet black. The spider has a broad cephalothorax and its legs are covered with spines.
