cobweb spider
This little male was near my back door in Taylorsville, Utah.  He was just enjoying relaxing in the
mild weather.  They have very long legs that always look like they want to hold on to
something - your fingers, maybe?  © Carol Davis 10-7-2016

The experts on Bugguide seem to have a little trouble with the Western US Steatoda. Maybe someday
a spider expert from Utah will join in on the identification process.  © Carol Davis 10-7-2016
