Great Job! That is so cool, it is great when we have a sighting in a new state, then people can know to look for it in that state. Thanks!

Sorry, I think this is Pisaurina mira, a Nursery Web Spider. You did a great presentation. Our site moderator, Itsy Bitsy makes the final determination of an identification if it there is doubt about an ID. Please don’t let that stifle discussion about identification though. That’s how we learn.

I was always told this was a grass spider here in Maine. Are they the same or similar?
