    Feb 2 - the spiderlings have molted (first instars) but surprisingly, mom was still around. However, after carefully looking at the low mag shot of the spiderlings, I realized there were still a few that hadn't molted yet.

    A more complete set of images of all stages can be found here: Jumping Spider Life Cycle | Up Close with Nature

    Bottom right is the molted one.
