No idea what type of spider this is and really want to know! Photo taken on a sunny, party cloudy day in April in North Texas. Any help is appreciated!

Hi, this is a nursery web spider,Pisauridae

Yes, Pisaurina mira. I think it is male. The males in this species have proportionally longer legs relative to body size compared to the females. The reason is thought to be to make it easier to mate with a female by holding her in place without the female eating the male.

How are you doing? Staying safe I hope!

Great, thanks for asking. Hubby has had to work 16 days without a day off but he still takes me out to cemeteries to look for my dead ancestors. “Six feet under” counts as social distancing. 😉 I see Running Crab Spiders every time, they REALLY like headstones.

Awh, i’m sorry 🙁 It’s hard times rn and it’s only gonna get Harder. They do love headstones because they almost blend in with them.
