Carteroniella (ant mimic sac spiders)
Carteroniella macroclava is the only South African species
of these ant mimic spiders.
Similar in appearance and habit to Cheiracanthium (long-legged sac
spider) in the family Miturgidae. Clubiona's face, around the eyes and
chelicerae is usually maroon to brown but never black, as is the case with Cheiracanthium.
There are no records of humans having being bitten by Clubiona.
