Back at the ranch I found this tiny spider on the landing. I hate spiders, but can just about cope with them this small. I think it's Theridion melanurum.

First thing to the moth light this evening wasn't a moth, but what I at first took to be a baby grasshopper. I think it was in fact a Slender Groundhopper - the first I've identified though I'm sure I must have seen them before.

Well this is all very well for pan-listing purposes but it ain't much good for the moth list. Hopefully the next post will be full of moths...
