Tiny Spider ID

Tiny Spider ID
Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge, Jennings County, Indiana, USA
June 30, 2012
This extremely tiny spider was found crawling around on the underside of a rocky along a rocky stream during the afternoon.

Moved from Entelegynes .

Moved from Spiders. The Balabans mention that some of the tiny Tetragnatha look like this and it does look similar to the Pachygnatha, but we're still unsure.

Moved from ID Request. I don't really have an answer for this one, but I wouldn't rule out widow spiderling. It would be nice to see more images. A full dorsal would be nice.

I thought it looked kind of like a Theridiid, but it was so tiny that it was hard to get any good shots of it.
