Comments & ID Thoughts

I don’t know what spider this is. It is tiny, about the point of a pencil. It was found in the strawberry top from strawberries from Chile.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linyphiidae Hi, your photo came out great for such a tiny spider! It might be in family Linyphiidae. The link I added for the Wikipedia article doesn’t have many photos. Some of the genera and species are found primarily in Chile. Overall there aren’t many identified photos of these tiny spiders, which makes sense.
