Philodromus species are

Philodromus species are difficult to tell apart, even under the microscope. How have you decided this is cespitum and not, say, aureolus?

Idents

I appreciate the problems with spider idents. Being old enough and wise enough to know you cannot know it all, I take photo's then try to match them up with books and images on the web. Then putting them on i-Spot trails my ident with other peoples ideas to perhaps thrash out the true identity.
