In my opinion I believe this is a dwarf spider (Family: Linyphiidae), they are a large family of poorly described spiders. This one seems to be quite beautiful though. Hope this helps!


Thanks Brad. I think it might actually be an Orchard Spider - Leucauge venusta as the image on this website seems spot on: https://bugguide.net/node/view/139833

What do you think?

Actually yes, that appears to be correct. Sorry for the mis-identification, it happens though. Always glad to try and help.

Best wishes,
