tiny spider - Theridiosoma gemmosum
Groton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
March 16, 2010
Size: 1mm
Found under a piece of bark. Looks a lot like this other one I found recently.

Moved to Theridiosoma gemmosum
Moved from Mysmenidae. See comments here

Moved from Unidentified Spiderlings.
Lynette, thanks for the confirmation.

Moved from Spiders.

Is this another Mysmenidae?

Mysmenidae juvenile
I think you might be right about that.

From Rod Crawford:
Spiderling, either orbweaver or theridiid. If the 4th tarsi had been in focus we could confirm if theridiid.
