Monroe County, Indiana, USA September 24, 2005 Size: Body 1/2 inch
This spider was spotted on a broad leafed plant where it moved around for the better part of a day. It then moved to a nearby potted mother-in-law's tongue plant, where it has taken up residence in a narrow space the base of the tall leaves. At night, it seems to move around on the plant, returning to its nook in the daytime. I've been observing it for four days. At first, I thought it was a wolf spider, because it doesn't seem to be making a web at all. But it looks just a photo of an Agelenopsis I found on your site. What do you think?
