Hatchlings from egg case made of pine needles
Zolfo Springs, Hardee County, Florida, USA

Size: 2 mm
Probably too young to ID. Would be grateful for any ideas.

Moved here for now
Moved from Jumping Spiders. Great pic!

 
thanks!
I *think* these are Eris floridana.

I sent some of the hatchlings to Glavis Edwards in Gainesville. He determined they were Eris.

Another collection I made on a different tree (and five days later) was ID'd E. floridana by Jeff Hollenbeck:

The pine trees in the area were full of these nests, which were all beautifully constructed.
