The Seek app identified this spider as Metacyrba taeniola. Found this little guy in my collection. Seems to have made a couple threads of web, and he’s just hanging out on the leaf. Are spiders useful as biological control over pests? I don’t mind him being here unless it would harm the plant. CAE0A274-A613-47D0-A1F6-C93E403FB3B0.jpeg

I encourage spiders in my greenhouse. I don't know if they eat aphids, etc.,but
they certainly do no harm. I rather like frogs and skinks as well.
