''Pisaurina mira'' is a species of spider in the family Pisauridae, the members of which are commonly called "nursery web spiders." They are similar to wolf spiders and to the long-legged water spiders. The best way to distinguish the Pisauridae from other Families is by observing their eye patterns.
