Male Long-jawed Orb Weaver  (two photos)
Family Tetragnathidae 
Genus
Tetragnatha


spider
Now this is what I call "long-jawed"!  This is the first male
of the genus that I have ever photographed and it makes me very
 happy.  The pedipalps (mating apparatus) that look like antennae
with bulbs on them are very long and very cool!  This spider was high
on a wall and very hard to photograph.  Carol Davis, 7-18-2010

Not only is this spider "long-jawed" but it is also "long-bodied"
and "long-legged".  I found it at Strawberry Reservoir.
