Spider Description Draft

Submitted by jmalloldiaz on Fri, 09/07/2018 - 15:05

This specimen seems to be a male cellar spider. I think it is a male because it has huge pedipalps, most commonly found in male arachnids. Its pedipalps are about the same size as its cephalothorax, and they are transparent.

It is difficult to see the complete set of eyes of this spider, but it seems to have two tiny principal eyes, also known as AME's (anterior medial eyes) and two pairs of bigger eyes located to the sides of the AME's.

The whole body of the spider is about the size of my thumbnail, which maybe around 1 cm more or less. The color of the body, disregarding the cephalothorax which is translucid, seems to be grey and it might be just because it is transparent as well and the organs are showing.
