Summary 2

Pisaurina mira is a species of spider in the family Pisauridae, the members of which are commonly called "nursery web spiders." They are similar to wolf spiders (Lycosidae) and to the long-legged water spiders (Trechaleidae). The best way to distinguish the Pisauridae from other Families is by observing their eye patterns.
