Hypsosinga rubens -- kmp-10017
This is a Hyposinga rubens male. Levi (1972a) notes that there is a large morphological variation in color and size, which is not related to geography but perhaps the number of moults before maturity.

He also provides more extensive drawings than do Dondale et al. 2003.
