My wife called me to the bathroom to see this spider. I potted it and
examined it. I could see it had these amazing palps. I couldn't take
really good photo, so I took it to my friend Melvin Grey who has
a special light box. What an incredible image was
The ID came within half an hour from email@example.com.
ping-pong ball-like blobs are 'palpal bulbs'. It is a male spider. I
that they play a part in the mating game. I understand that male
their palps to transfer a package of sperm to the female. If he
is lucky he
may escape before she devours him. May be these white bulbs fool
into thinking that he hasn't delivered the parcel. He would then
chance to escape. That is my theory anyway.
Best wishes, Peter Byles.
