My name is Brianna. I was wondering what kind of spider this was. it has large palps. its legs are black and its body is a neon reddish orange color. I found it hanging of the railing of my open porch.
This really is an unusual looking spider. We are posting the photo before we attempt to identify it. We are a bit busy now and we hope one of our readers will be able to provide an answer.
I think I may have found out what the spider is. Ceraticelus minutus. I’m keeping him as a pet. Some people have dogs. I have a dwarf spider. =] He actually looks alot different now. Hes paps are black and he is turning tan and tangerine. -Bri
Hi again Bri,
Thanks for the follow up information. We found some photos on the Spiders Electronic Field Guide website.
