IntroductionAn unusual species with strongly lineate yellow and dark markings on abdomen, living in spanish moss in the southeastern United States. The lack of two distinct rami on the embolus makes its placement in Pelegrina problematic.
- Male face
- Female abdomen
Natural HistoryPreferred habitat appears to be Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides; 3 records, and see Kaston, 1973).
