KY spider 03 - Agyneta micaria - male

KY spider 03 - Agyneta micaria - Male
Pulaski County, Kentucky, USA
May 27, 2011
Size: ~ 1.5 mm body length

Moved
Moved from Meioneta dactylata. Meioneta was moved to Agyneta this year (Dupérré 2013), and since it's now reflected in the new version of the World Spider Catalog, I'm getting ready to move them... and saw that M. dactylata Chamberlin & Ivie 1944 appears to be synonymous with M. micaria (now Agyneta micraria, which I'll move to next).

Moved
Moved from Meioneta.

Moved
Moved from Spiders. Thanks Kevin! I'll move it here until we're sure what it is.

Nadine D. confirmed this. Meioneta dactylata Chamberlin & Ivie, 1944.

The 'not' list...
I'm finally back to this specimen (such a pain when work interferes).

I don't yet have a species, but I can tell you what it's not (drawings in Paquin & Dupérré, 2003):


A. allosubtilis,
A. amersaxatilis,
A. angulata,
A. dynica,
A. fabra,
A. jacksoni,
A. nigripes,
A. olivacea,
A. serrata,
A. simplex,
A. unimaculata


It has a prominent RTA like A. unimaculata and shares certain similar features with A. fabra and A. olivacea, but is neither, IMO.

The closest match, so far, is Meioneta dactylata.

This is an Agyneta (Meioneta)
This is an Agyneta (Meioneta) species, Agyneta fabra, I believe. Will shoot photos later (as best possible).

From Rod Crawford:
possibly a nesticid
