Pirate Spiders - Mimetidae

    Family - Mimetidae
    12 genera, 152 species
    Unusual Egg Sac.
    I think this is the work of a Pirate Spider (Genus - Ero ?)
    " could be Ero aphana, but I don't know how distinctive this is
    in relation to other species". - Peter Harvey BAS
    This Species preys on other Spiders by invading their webs.
