Winged Spider

Is there such thing as a winged spider? My experiences camping, and searching around may uncover a new species of spiders.

Last year while I was wondering around for no apparent reason I spotted something peculiar.  I had believed I saw a winged spider.  As I thought I was crazy this year I saw an exact match.  It looked just like the one I saw a year ago.  After that I had searched the Internet for any previous sightings of this creature.  But alas, the only photos I found had no match at all, and were what looked like photo shop edited snapshots.  Unfortunately I never got a picture of this arachnid and could never prove I had seen one.  It was a very strange sight at first but I did find it impossible for there to be any more logic than that it was a flying arachnid.  I am amazed at how animals could have morphed, evolved, and maybe just breaded to create such evolved things.  If anything it could be a tie in with how flying ants got wings.  Or an evolution beyond humanoid’s reach.  If anything It could also be a science experiment that escaped and breaded with other spiders.  I believe we have evolution on our hands, and evolution will soon find us.  The picture below is not a picture of mine and is not winged.

    once while watching some nature show ,a man went up in an air balloon,pretty high up ..the man then took out a vaccum and sucked up some of the air up there.turned it off,and pulled the net out that had caught whatever he had vaccumed up.there,he had found frozen winged spiders.i was amazed ,this is right b4 talk about the worlds climate ,and how we r heating in the back of my mind,i’ve been wondering,has it gotten hot enough for the spiders to thaw,could they come to life if so,you folks r the first to see some of them.i was looking up frozen winged spiders and this is what i found,so,still looking for footage of that nature show i once seen,would be kool to share.good luck finding ur answers you r looking for

    I would be extremely interested in see a picture of one of these spiders. not that I don’t belive you, but that I want to compare it to one in my memory. just to see if its a match. oh an just so you no if it has wings, its not a spider. or an insect it would be a totaly new breed off animal. spiders are spider because there flightless, and insects only have three legs. if anyone has the picture please email it to me

    I’m thinking these sightings were spiders of the genus Stegodyphus.. Although most spiders can only use ballooning (meaning floating through the air) using a silk “parachute” if they weigh 1mg or less, seems these ones can balloon even though they can weigh over 100mg, and without even using silk. How? They have up to hundreds of strands of silk which form a silk sheet of up to 1 meter in the shape of a triangle. Could be those wings you saw? Though it says they live in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Spider-lings however can actually travel long distances using ballooning, so it would not be impossible to see a rare species of spider somewhere it is not native, just extremely unlikely. This is thought to be a way spiders have been using to migrate.
