Robin, thanks for checking that out. I'm putting it back in the family page.

any info
hi all i want any information about this spider plz ? name ext ..

[b]Nome científico/Scientifi
Nome científico/Scientific name:
Trombidium olosericum

for the scientific name.

no such species
Rafa may have meant "Trombidium holosericeum" but that is a Palearctic species, according to this list by Joanna Makol of Poland; I couldn't find any North American records of holosericeum on the web.

This might be a Trombidium or Allothrombium species - or even something in a different family, for all I know.
