Comments & ID Thoughts

Small, maybe half an inch max leg span. Unfortunately I don’t even have a guess to this species, I’ve never seen one like it. Found on my table outside near a dense forest of that helps.

Wow! I don’t know either. I’m impressed that you recognized it as a spider instead of an insect. I counted the legs and body segments a few times to be sure.

Hi. The legs look like this may be one of the orb weavers, perhaps something like cave orb weaver.
If not that, it may be one of the cobweb spiders.
Either way, looks to be adult male.
This can mean a lot of sifting. I don’t know this spider, I have encountered some cave orb weavers that resemble this but much larger. what rang a bell until reading the description.
I won’t even rule out a yet undescribed species.
