Hello, my name is Lauren Saldana. I'm an entomology major over at FSU and i specialize in arachnids. So today we're going to be talking about the spiders of Pennsylvania. And the first one that we'll be talking about is the arrow shaped micrathena. The arrow shaped micrathena has a very small cephalathorax with either a dark red or a dark brown color to them and they're most commonly found in woodland areas and in gardens. And the next one that we'll be talking about is the venusta orchard spider, which they obviously hang out in orchards and sometimes other vegetation as well. Their colors are yellow-green with stripes of brown running down their sides. And that's it for Pennsylvania. Thank you.
