Tharpyna munda (RM)|
or a closely related species
female: 5 mm|
male: 4 mm
Under loose bark of tree trunks or among leaves; this spider is primarily nocturnal
Too small to harm a human?
This species is not normally seen in association with any kind of insect-trapping web but prefers to ambush the insects it preys on.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Tharpyna diademata and some other small thomisids and salticids.
