Walckenaeria acuminata

One of the reasons I like the linyphiidae (money spiders) is that the males often have modified heads which carry one or more pairs of eyes, which makes them look very strange. Walckenaeria acuminata is one of the more extreme, with all of its eyes on this ridiculous stalk! In real life, the spider is about 2mm long.
