was lucky to finally catch one of these extremely fast, very small spiders.

This observation links to this earlier obs.: http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/4968892

Many slabs of schist rock lying flat on the ground had these small "bubble-like" nests, usually just under the edge of the rocks, adjacent to the grass.
