Does anyone know anything about the identification of this spider? Sorry, but it's the only image I have. It was shot at 2004, January 25th (summer), at 11:27 AM, in Cerrado biome at Minas Gerais state, Brazil. It was walking over a Paepalanthus inflorescence (Eriocaulaceae), probably waiting to prey on its pollinators. A small section of web can be seen raised to the left (where it apparently comes from another inflorescence), touches one of the small flowers, and then it's apparently still connected to the spider, in a pattern that reminds me of Salticidae, though I'm not sure. I think its size is around 1 cm. I doubt a specific identification will be possible, but family, superfamily, subfamily, anything will be fine.
