Look at the spider's mouth parts to determine it's gender.
Male spiders have swollen palps called pedipalps.
In the Myrmarachne genus, male ones usually have larger and longer chelicerae.

I was thinking it was an ant eating another ant when I made my first spotting - shekainahdalaban. This one actually travelled down one of the threads from one leaf to another. Very clever!

I thought all this time that this is an ant. That's why I'm wondering to see the females of this species spin a web for a nest.
