This tiny and quite spindly little spider was sitting on a grass in the forest. Found it while it was spinning a web. It's rained heavily all day so I assume it had some repair to do. The spider was less then 1cm in length, had disproportionately translucent long legs and an elongated brown/green and black striped body. The head was light brown and the mandibles (?) very long!


ID help appreciated.
