unidentified spider - Sphodros
Rock Bridge State Park, Boone County, Missouri, USA
April 2, 2011
Size: maybe 2mm (?)
Found these spiderlings in a web in twigs a foot or two above ground. These things were tiny. When got my macro pix home, showed some nice fangs. Friend of mine who knows a lot more about bugs than I do sez they are likely some sort of trap or folding door spider (Mygalomorph) ???
This is my first post. Bug Guide is really great - use it all the time. Recommended by Anthony Zukoff & Betsy Betros, good bug folks.
Any help is much appreciated.
