Cellar Spider Pedipalps
So when I went to the Butterfly Pavilion, I finally brought my tripod. The lady behind the desk reminded me that only monopods were allowed in the pavilion, but I'd brought it for the spiders. The light is much lower in the "other bugs" room and it's much harder to get a good picture, especially behind all that glass.
This is a cellar spider, I assume male with those pedipalps. A female was nearby with a small egg sac.
