male long-jawed orbweaver
May 28, 2010
I searched WTB for “long-jawed” and found only the long-jawed beetle; I thought perhaps you might like these images of a male long-jawed orbweaver. These were taken in my backyard in northwestern New Jersey on this coolish late-spring morning (5/28/10). I love spiders and was thrilled to find this guy out walking about.

Your photos of a Long Jawed Orbweaver in the genus Tetragnatha are gorgeous. BugGuide does not provide any information on the info page, and browsing reveals 9 different species, but we aren’t certain which species is represented in your photos.
Your photos are so nice, we are posting all three.
