It looks like a type of nursery web spider to me. I don't know what species though.

Hi, Chid- your unknown sp. of arachnid is most likely Thanatus vulgaris, a running crab spider commonly found in cricket boxes.



If you decide to keep the four, they're arboreal, not terrestrial.:)


P.S-


Thanks, Martin H. for helping me for probable ID of this spider, which he posted under the thread, "The horrah... I tell you... the horrah..."
