#427 Yellow Sac Spider (Cheiracanthium mildei)

06 May

There are a number of spider species superficially very similar to each other of which I think it probable that this is Cheiracanthium mildei from the family Cheiracanthiidae. C. mildei is commonly known as the northern yellow sac spider, a name it partially shares with many other spiders of its genus.

Native to Europe and North Africa through to Central Asia. It is introduced to the United States and parts of South America. It widespread across the northeastern United States and eastern Canada, and can be found outside, or more commonly inside houses.
