Little spider - Dictyna - male

Little spider - Dictyna - Male
Tularosa, Otero County, New Mexico, USA
March 9, 2012
Size: 5mm length
This is the second of this species I have seen in two days. The other one was at home and I couldn't get a good picture of those spikes that were coming out of his palps. I have been observing the other one for days and it has spun some web but basically laying at the bottom of my bug catcher. This ones palps were swollen which is why I assume it's a male but I won't check it until and expert can confirm it. I am uploading another shot that really shows the spike coming out of the palp.
