Comments & ID Thoughts

This beauty was smaller than the tip of my finger. Spotted outdoors in Bloomfield. Very curious and not afraid when I got very close. Wondering what it is. It had only a strand or two started of a web, so no defining features on that.

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This looks like a Sheetweb Spider in the genus Neriene.
