Anyphaena celer

Anyphaena celer
Marlton, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
April 12, 2010
Size: Maybe around 5 mm?
She laid some eggs several days before this date and stayed sitting on them at all times. There was a layer of webbing like a tarp over them, well really under I guess since they were near the lid of the container.
Measurement above is for the whole egg cluster, each egg is less than 1mm

Nice. Yeaya!
The only images of confirmed anyphaenid eggs in the guide! Peter Bryant posted one photo a long time ago but there's not really any actual proof in it. We have proof with yours! You da man.

I've recently (last 4 months or so) become interested in egg sacs and rearing the ones I find so I can know what they look like for each species. So this addition to the guide makes me happy.

 
Hopefully
I will get images of some spiderlings, and maybe we will get a species ID from our good friend in Germany!
