Cobweb spider? - Neottiura bimaculata - female

Cobweb spider? - Neottiura bimaculata - Female
Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
June 19, 2008
Size: 2 mm.
I don't know whether to link this male and female but I'm going to until someone decides to change it. I remeasured the female that stayed on the leaf for about a day and she was more like 2-3 mm rather than 4 mm. They were all legs. Can anyone ID these tiny spiders.

Moved to Neottiura bimaculata
Moved from Cobweb Spiders. The females of this species are pretty variable in color, but the males are consistent and have large and uniquely shaped palps. Seeing these as a pair in your images helped me be more sure of the ID.

Definitely cobweb weavers as
Definitely cobweb weavers as far as i can tell. Some amazing shots!

I'm not sure of Genus, but it could be something from Theridon.

 
Lucky...
I felt really lucky to happen upon this couple because they were so tiny. Thanks for your help.
