Tiny male dictyinid - Emblyna saylori - male

Tiny male dictyinid - Emblyna saylori - Male
Redwood City, Stulsaft Park, San Mateo County, California, USA
May 2, 2018
Size: 1.5 mm
I swept this tiny adult male dictynid from grasses. The palp, somatic markings and geographic location all seem like a good fit to this species. As is often the case, it's hard to see the fine details of the tip of the embolus in these specimens, so that limits my ability to ID them to some extent. Comments or corrections welcome.
