Photographs from Colquitz River Park last night by Ian Cooper. Thanks to Dr Robb Bennett for the spider identifications. Dr Bennett writes that the first is a species of Cybaeus – almost certainly Cybaeus signifer. A mature female.

Jeremy Tatum speculates: This individual doesn’t look quite typical. I wonder if it has just undergone ecdysis. Or maybe a different species?
