Any ideas what type of spider ? - Castianeira crocata
Defiance Klondike park, St. Charles County, Missouri, USA
June 7, 2008
Size: 1/2 ?
more than one seen in the general area, all were observed "foraging?" along a paved path in the open moved in short but fast spurts.

Moved from Redspotted Antmimic. After doing more research we're moving this one to C. crocata based on range, pattern & lack of white stripes on posterior tibiae.

Moved from Spiders.

Lovely color
looks like red-spotted ant mimic to me.
