Western Lynx with prey dangling from orange tree via silk. I'm sorry for the fly, but I respect the arthropod circle of life and the Lynx's hunting ability.

Hololena sp. set up a nursery in the left side of our kitchen sink. She's created an egg sac which she has decorated/camouflaged. She held still enough to do focus stacking on the second image.

Continuation of observations from 7/16/23 and earlier today (7/19/23). Emerged parasite wasps that originated in an potter wasp nest (around 20+ in the one pot, last picture) were released. Less than 5mm in size. Pretty docile and it appears the smaller males were already attached to females. A fascinating experience to watch the development of the pupa outside of the nest. Any insights on a more specific ID are welcome!

Description

Male and female found in the same web mass under an old log. Both were collected and after some guidance the female was identified as C. angelena using Chamberlin and Ivie's 1941 revision.

The clincher was the long scape (or stylus in Chamberlin and Ivie 1941) on the epigynum - a defining feature of the genus. It was very close to both C. restricta and C. angelena, but the stylus is white in restricta and dark in angelena. C. angelena has also been found in California while restricta has not (supporting point).
According to the revision, members of this genus are very close in appearance to Agelenopsis, requiring a detailed look at the spider's reproductive structures to distinguish them. Interestingly, the male has never been formally described.
