spider - Emblyna hentzi - female

spider - Emblyna hentzi - Female
Townsend, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
May 21, 2010
Size: 2.5mm

Moved from Emblyna.

In my opinion, this is Emblyna hentzi -- not too surprising as you've already collected the male and it's a relatively common species in the NE.

Specimen: kmp-06305

Moved from "Dictyna-like".

Hmmm, the male in the same vial was Emblyna sublata, but I'm more inclined to suspect annulipes or hentzi. The epigyne is very similar to that of several species and not strongly sclerotized.

I'll look at it again in the morning, but am leaning towards leaving this at the genus level.

This is also Emblyna, possibl
This is also Emblyna, possibly our sublata female; but I first want to check the male more closely. (Were they found together?)
