Saw these in abundance last summer; but never found any larvae.

Today's sightings of numerous adults in two neighborhood yards graced with blue passionflowers suggests that they did breed successfully in '14.

Two individuals in this post; possibly male and female?

Description

I found this spider in a flower pot with a colony of ants. The spider appeared to be trying to avoid the ants and was constantly being climbed on. In the pot also were 7 snails of varying sizes. The spider was moved to a different plant because the pot was to be emptied, and when i picked up the spider there were at least 6 ants still holding onto the spider. The ants would bite only the spider's foot and could not be removed by the spider. The spider was moved to a different plant without ants, climbed under a leaf and stayed there.

Description

This spider was found laying with legs 1 and 2 close together in the front and legs 3 and 4 in the back in the corner of the door frame of my house. There was some webbing although i didn't get a photo of it. The web was moderately small(2-3 cm in length) and was not very thick. The spider was moved using the tupperware container shown to the deck railing. Once there, the spider quickly started to spin a web under the railing. It appeared to have 4 parts to its spinnerets. This spider was about 2 cm in body length and is compared to the bottom of the tub, which was about 8 cm on all sides. The weather was cold and the spider moved slowly and when i went to check on the spiders location later in the day hen it was warmer, it was gone.
