Hi, cool find. This looks like something in Prodidomidae. I’m not sure of genus/species. Looks similar to: http://beta.boldsystems.org/index.php/Taxbrowser_Taxonpage?taxid=764065
Yes actually …!!! is it a ground spider ?
No, this looks like it is in the family Prodidomidae, Ground Spider usually refers to Gnaphosidae. 🙂
Edit: Hang on … I found a common name, “Long-spinneret Ground Spiders” … so, sort-of!
Yes yes… but it was very aggressive in nature, contentiously trying to attack on my camera or finger thus the picture was not quite good… But really thanks for the ID.
This family got merged with Gnaphosidae after all. (Azevedo, Griswold & Santos, 2018b)
