I had never seen this spider before and I thought it was quite beautiful with
its two-toned legs.  Bugguide helped me identify it.  Carol Davis 6-22-2012

Up until this day the only Trashline spiders I had seen were female so when I found this little spider
with whitish-yellow legs bands, I had no idea what it was. The abdomen does resemble the female
somewhat only her abdomen is larger  This one was hanging out in the Jordanelle Dam

Wetlands in Wasatch County, Utah.  Carol Davis, 6-22-2012
