@DianePlatcoBrooks, "Milkweed Tussock Moth" and "Milkweed Tiger Moth" are both common names for the same species, Euchaetes egle ( https://bugguide.net/node/view/433 ). I never intended to imply that the tussocks don't also have a right to the milkweed, only that they can be a nuisance for gardeners specifically trying to raise milkweed for monarchs. I agree that they grow into beautiful caterpillars.

I'd say that looks like a good match for genus. Thanks!

I also have aphid-infested milkweed, but luckily these little guys are around to help clear them out! I'm pretty sure Machi's identification is correct; that teardrop shape is a dead giveaway. Great photo! I've never seen them in this much detail before.

From what I can tell, we don't have False Widows in Ohio, although we're close enough to Kentucky that I suppose it's possible one jumped the border. :)

I was tentatively thinking Thomisidae, but I'm not very familiar with that family so I didn't want to presume. Glad someone else agrees! Xysticus looks pretty close judging by the BG pictures, so I'm happy to stick with that for now. Thanks!
