Didn't Lynette move another image with this same species earlier today? Or was it this specimen? I can't recall. It seems so distinctive that you would think it would be described even in Kaston's "Know the Spiders".



The reason I didn't see it among "Dictyna-like" when I first looked is, it wasn't there yet.

Moved from "Dictyna-like".

Moved from Spiders.

Makes us think of the dark Dictyna
but we're not certain. Check out the "Dictyna-like" file and see what you think.

Must be
I scanned before posting and didn't find one like mine, but looking again I see there is a similar light-bordered dark spider in with the rest. All the other spiders on leaves were Dictyna-like.
