Comments & ID Thoughts

You have the species listed in your database as Metaltella simoni (Hacklemesh Weaver). This photo was taken this morning (2.16.2018) outside just before noon at a temp of about 65° F. It was about 2.5 cm long and was the second sighting within a month. The first one was indoors but was dead. Not many survive my pesticide perimeter for long.
