RE: Probably Pisaurina mira
Thanks for the ID. I'm not all that knowledgeable about spiders, but I should have thought of that as I saw similarities to the fishing spiders. And while I was aware that fishing spiders and Nursery web spiders are in the same family, the possible connection eluded me at the time. It seems that more and more those synapses of mine just are firing as they should be.
