What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

spined micrathena
Howdy Bug Man,
I promised (threatened?) more photos. I didn’t see any pics of this spider on your site. Here are a couple of shots of Spined Micrathena (Micrathena gracilis.) One is shown repairing it’s orb, you can see the silk strand coming from the spinaret, the other is shown with a recently caught victim (either a type of fly or small bee.) They are numerous in the mountains of North Carolina in August. Regards,
Ed Kelley

Hi Ed,
Wow, thanks for a new species for our site. We have numerous photos of the Arrow Shaped Micrathena, and your Spiny Micrathena photos are awesome.
