Spider Under Microscope

I found this spider, dead, outside the window of my apartment. Looks like some species of yellow sac spider (genus Cheiracanthium).

Foot with thick hair around the claw

Leg joint

Head, pedipalps

Eyes

Spinnerets, finger like organs that spin thread that are at the posterior of the abdomen

Head from below, chelicerae and fangs visible

Fangs from below

Sternum, the ventral part of the cephalothorax (This is very close to what you see when a Xenomorph facehugger jumps you.)

The first segments (closest to the body) of the legs
