Came to MVL.

Moved to Castianeira trilineata
Moved from Spiders. I'm going to go ahead and move it here since I think this ID is very likely. This spider looks immature to me, not sure why just a gut feeling. That may complicate the ID, but I still think this is a good guess.

I checked
with my spider expert here in Kansas, Bruce Cutler, and he agrees it is most likely C. trilineata.

Thanks for checking with your local expert. That's always helpful to us.

Nice! Wonder if it is one of those pale Castianeira
like C. trilineata

looks like a real possibility. Thanks!
