Unnamed gnaphosid species
Unnamed gnaphosid species (QM) |
(but clearly an ant mimic)
female: perhaps 4 mm|
Probably mostly found wandering on green leaves or the bark of trees
Unknown and probably too small to he hazardous to humans
Distinguishing features of this kind of spider are its ant-like appearance, its wide-set cylindrical spinnerets
and especially the dense brushes on the undersides of the first pair of walking legs.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some ant-mimic salticids such as Rhombonotus gracilis but the species shown above does not have the eye pattern of a salticid.
