Unknown little spider - Dolichognatha pentagona

Unknown little spider - Dolichognatha pentagona
Deane, Letcher County, Kentucky, USA
September 18, 2013
Size: 1mm
I found this little spider almost two months ago. It has finally gotten big enough to at least see. It has space between it's head and abdomen, reminds me of a slinky when it is running. The abdomen is always standing upright.

Sweeet!
What do you think of

 
Tiny spider
Yes! That is it. Thank you very much. I was so afraid it was going to die,it was sooo tiny. I kept getting dirt out of the flower bed every week. I thought they had to be something in it I couldn't see that it could eat. There must have been because it has grown some.

 
Nice!
It seems like you find everything I do! Are you going to raise it? I lost mine....

 
Little spider
LOL I had no clue!

How much longer will it take to be grown? I don't know what I would feed it this winter.

 
I have ....
no idea. :) Mine was about the same size and I couldn't make out if it was mature or not, I was leaning towards not. I seem to remember finding thrips in leaf litter for something I was holding last winter. Looking for thrips isn't fun though.

 
Little spider
I will try to keep it as long as I can. There has to be something it could eat!

 
I just realized ...
there's no date, could you add that please?
