January 28, 2017: Magnolia Green Jumping spider (Lyssomanes viridis)

It was cold this morning, which means spiders are slow, and therefore quite cooperative when trying to focus.   I went to my usual crab spider place and found a very small one, and nearby, a magnolia green jumping spider (Lyssomanes viridis) and Tetragnatha (sleeping)

Here several mature leaf hoppers and the lower right on is a juvenile

Tetragnatha (maybe elongate) - a male

 Another view of the long jawed Tetragnatha

A small crab spider (Mecaphesa celer)

  Theridion spiderlings

 Female magnolia green jumping spider (Lyssomanes viridis)

Lateral view - her retina is not visible

A moment later - her retina appeared

Face of Lyssomanes viridis - her big eyes are clear indicating she is looking away from me

Also, not looking at me
