You're a champ, Ryan! Was this a stacked image? Perhaps you could write something sometime in the spider forum about your trip to/time spent in the AMNH.


Yes this is a stacked image. The full res version is on Wikimedia Commons. Unfortunately, I only got to spend a day at the museum, so I didn't get to photograph many specimens.

Moved from Dendryphantinae.
