Size: body length 12.8 mm.
We believe this spider to be a female in the genus Tetragnatha. It was collected from a small potted rosebush at the edge of a pond. The chelicerae appear to be longer than the carapace and the lateral eyes are closer together than the median eyes. These features would be consistent with T. elongata. This
male was collected from the same bush at the same time and is possibly the same species.
Placement would be appreciated.
