This one showed up on my desk.
|Another running speck, maybe 1 mm., fangs to spinnerets.|
She has a shield-shaped thorax, skinny pedipalps (identifying her as juvenile or female), and very impressive fangs for her size.
And she had all eight legs when I first saw her, but trying to keep her from getting into my computer with a small piece of paper, I damaged two and broke one off completely. She was that tiny and fragile. I eventually managed to move her to a flowerpot without doing any more damage, I think.
Another one for BugGuide. And this one, I'm calling the valet spider, for now, because of the pattern on her back; a throwback to more formal times.
