Removed from bed of English Ivy and photographed indoors. P. mira was NOT observed on this web. However, the location from which it was taken has produced many P. mira specimens, including the two others in this picture set. I find these consistently, and the only other webs I consistently find are those of funnel weavers at ground level.

See images of a captured specimen here

Hi again,
Bugguide has pretty strict rules about posting only images of one specimen linked together. After reading your comments under the images I can see this is more than one specimen. If you want to tell a story with your images you can place thumbnails in your comment area. Thumbnails use the photo image (found upper left of your image) and you can type them like this [thumb: 483322] (but without the space) will create

Thanks, Lynette...
Sorry to step over the guidelines. I'll certainly keep that in mind if I make any other posts.


No problem
it takes a while to learn all of them. I went ahead and created thumbnails of the two images that aren't that specimen and placed them under your first image. Thanks for posting them, they are great shots.

Many thanks, Lynette
I have some additional shots just made of one of the spiders at the time of molting. I'll try to post those appropriately.
