Spider ID Please...

Another fascinating part of field herping, along with all the other natural wonders we encounter, is the invertebrates! This forum is dedicated to both field and captive invertebrates.

Spider ID Please...

Post by MSD »

Daughter caught this lady on our screen, and I'm not sure what kind it is. Something new, or at least a little different, than the grass and wolf spiders we typically see walking or screens.

Any help is appreciated...

Nevermind. Got home to see it in person, and a quick search through some arachnid sites and we discovered we have a Harvestman.

Nothing to see here, folks. Move along...

Asking out of ignorance:
Could this be a Lampshade Weaver Spider?
