Pool spider - Selenops submaculosus - Male
Rotonda West, Charlotte County, Florida, USA
June 4, 2011
Size: body ~ fingernail length
Really cool spider hanging out on the lip of the pool. Sorry I don't have anything to measure with, but the body seemed about fingernail length, maybe 10-15 mm. Looks much larger because of the long legs.

Just a guess but maybe Selenops sp.? I can collect it if needed.

Moved from Selenops. Very cool.

Selenops submaculosus
Another new species for BG: Selenops submaculosus.


Moved from Spiders. Collected for Kevin.
