I'm noticing an increase in easily-spotted long-jawed spiders this week in Mt. Dora. They are out and in force, taking advantage of the aquatic midge infestation happening right now.
After doing some research online, this looks like it should be Tetragnatha laboriosa, the silver long jawed orbweaver. They fall within this range and are reportedly very common -- which vibes with how many I've seen. These spiders are incredibly common (though not always openly visible).
Confirmation or correction, as always, would be appreciated.
