I just love this little, red and black spider! The abdomen and the bottom two-thirds of all legs are black where the thorax and top third of the legs are red. This spider was only about 6mm long, hence the name "dwarf".
Unknown plant in field of fireweed, berry bushes, vetch and lupine.
First of this genus on PN and the first in Alaska for BugGuide.
Lat: 62.27, Long: -150.03
