Moved from Mesh Web Weavers.

Got one, finally a dictynid
(These are hard -- on first look, the pedipalps look as identical to each other as do the habitus images.)

Emblyna hentzi (Kaston, 1945)

Determination made using Kaston, 1948, and Paquin & Dupérré, 2003.

Kevin, you're making great progress with these spiders, getting more new species identified for the guide. Thanks for all the hard work!

 
..
I second that! :)

From Rod Crawford:
Probably a Dictyna sp. In this genus there's no hope of species ID
without full detail of genitalia.

1.8mm!
You are amazing.

 
The hardest part
is finding them on the snow:-) It helps when I look soon after a snow storm before it gets covered with lots of little spots of dirt.
