Can you please tell me what kind of spider this is? It almost looked like an ant at first, then I saw the legs. [location: British Colombia, Canada]
Hi, Monique! Sorry for the delay!
I think your spider might be a leafcurling sac spider, Clubiona- different family entirely from ground sac spiders and the ‘yellow’ sac spiders- but I’m not 100% sure. I can’t make out enough details to say for certain, though that’s the best match I could find. I did think she was a Trachelas at first, but those aren’t found in British Columbia.
There are a couple species options, but I’m not going to attempt to get more specific than a genus. She’s totally harmless, though.
Thank you for sharing and for your patience!
