Attercopus fimbriunguis - a Devonian fossil on the way to (or perhaps just in) the spiders. Problematic characters include a whip-tail, no distinct spinnerets (but fossil silk), and no poison glands (although modern segmented spiders apparently never had poison glands and at least one more modern family, Uloboridae, does without them). According to the Wikipedia article (at least at this moment) the generic name is from the Old English attorcoppa for "poison-head", clearly a misnomer in this case.
Dolomedes triton hanging out around our year old pond. Alas, I fear the male found no fair female and had to bugger off to an uncertain future (probably a more common fate for wandering male spiders than being eaten by their objects of desire). My wife and I, however, were delighted that he stopped by and only wish that more and bigger spiders would take up residence. Yes, we have no Arachnophobia (but are considering buying a dvd of the movie – which features an impressive cast of mostly Australian spiders, a moderately entertaining [if factually confused] script, and good, campy acting).
|Actually Araneus trifolium - gemmoides has two humps on its abdomen|
|Actually a theridiid - probably Crustulina sticta|
|Tetragnatha is the correct spelling|
|Phylonetta impressa (formerly Theridion impressum)|
