New spider - Pisaurina mira

New spider - Pisaurina mira
Lake Roland Park, Baltimore County, Maryland, USA
August 26, 2018
Size: 5/8"
Did not see a web other than the webbing you can see in the image.

Moved from ID Request.

Not at all embarassing
Great images for data collection.


We keep wondering if the next analysis
of the genus will show that there has been an undescribed species, but for now these are being placed under mira

I just discovered a photo of an identical looking spider taken by me two years ago in the same area.

Seems to be one of the color forms

Looks the same, but not what I expected.

Looks to be
Pisaurina mira

With those striped legs?
