Male Long-jawed Orb Weaver
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 antenna 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


male long-jawed orb weaver
Not only is this spider "long-jawed" but it is also "long-bodied" and "long-legged".  I found
it at Strawberry Reservoir.  © Carol Davis, 7-18-2010
