Small spider - Frontinella pyramitela

Small spider - Frontinella pyramitela
Baton Rouge, Brookhollow Drive, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, USA
November 10, 2006
Size: body length 2.1 mm.
We believe this to be a subadult female Frontinella pyramitela. It appears to be the same as this recent post by Tom Murray. The pattern on the abdomen seems correct for the species but does not have the smooth finished appearance of the adult. For comparision, our earlier post here appears to be an adult female.
Confirmation/correction would be appreciated.

Yes.
Definitely correct species ID. Don't know how to tell whether this is an adult or not.

 
Thanks Eric,
With the help of you and others, we have decided there was insufficient information to determine age or gender.
