Dictynid female - Dictyna foliacea - female

Dictynid female - Dictyna foliacea - Female
Black Dog Preserve, Dakota County, Minnesota, USA
June 27, 2013
Size: 3mm
Found during sweep of calcareous fen during bioblitz with USFWS.

I've been through Chamberlin & Gertsch, 1958, Kaston, 1948, and Paquin & Duperre, 2003. None of the epigyna seem to match. It keys out to Dictyna/Emblyna in C & G, 1958.

Good luck, we certainly need all the voucher images we can get in this family. It's a tough group.

 
Yep
I have a feeling that I'm just going to have to curl up with Chamberlin & Gertsch, 1958 and read it cover to cover. The drawings in my copy were scanned too dark so detail is limited.

 
...
Good luck for sure. Looks like there might be some extra detail in the middle of the epigynum, obscured by hair?
