Great!

Thanks, Max
:)

Excellent picture!
This is the kind of clear detail that's needed on epigyne shots, and for making proper ID's. You've got a nice series of pictures here, from several important diagnostic perspectives (that is, we get a good idea of the 3D shape of this epigyne and its structures). There's no doubt what species of spider this is!

 
Thank you, John
That's exactly what I was going for. :) Thank you for taking the time to look.
