I am so glad you posted that! I have been trying to figure out what that is. Always see them in my yard!

Nice find! Insects and spiders (along with some other organisms) belong in the Arthropods section. I have moved this one for you already. It would be great if you could move your other spottings to the correct category.

The "Other" category is for organisms like slugs, snails, jellyfish, starfish, etc. that don't fit into the rest of the categories. Hope this helps!
