|Ventral side of female O. praticola|
sifted from oak litter in Arenac County,
Surprisingly, I found an adult female O. praticola under the first board I turned over. In addition, I sifted mature specimens from two separate deposits of oak litter. A juvenile Ozyptila sp. was also present in the fallen cones. In short, not only are O. praticola present at this Michigan site, but they're common enough to be easily found in at least two microhabitats.
