The common name of this small spider (about 5 mm long body) is based upon the appearance of the male . The enlarged chelicerae extend from the body & are over half as long as the cepthalothorax. In the male the first pair of legs are enlarged, powerful & dark brown while the other legs are much lighter in color.
Spotted on one of the maple trees we planted last year as part of phase 1 of our wildlife habitat creation project.
