Dictyna coloradensis   (two photos)
"branch tip spider"

Dictyna coloradensis web
Dictyna coloradensis  in her web at Bear River MBR.  These spiders are everywhere but are very reclusive.  I was
really excited to see this one out and about.  Someone needs to go in their and tidy up her cupboard a bit.

I identified this spider from a photo on Rod Crawford's site.  Rod is a spider guru who works at the
 Burke Museum in Seattle, Washington.  The flash on my camera washed out the spider but if you
look closely, you can see it.  This shows the striped head markings better.  © Carol Davis, 5-24-2009
