Arrow-shaped (horned) spider

Micrathena (sagitatta or obtusispina)


For me this spider looks like it has a tiny mayan-like face in the center of its body!

I too... sure... When assured to match with body structure and its scope in area then only suggest.. I did searched for more than 400 images...for exact matching and availability.

thanks Ashish! I am not sure whether sagitatta or obtusispina, but Micrathena for sure :-)
