Moved from Olios.
Some species of Olios were moved to a new genus (Rheims, 2015(1)).

Giant Crab Spider, Olios?
See what you think of these.

These shots are really awesome, great job!

Thanks for the compliment and Genus-level ID! I went through the G. Olios images and it does look like a close match.

Wow....impressive fangs.

Fangs galore
Indeed, Sam. I didn't realize it until I peered through the viewfinder. After seeing these fabulous fangs I was less inclined to gently coax the creature with my fingers! You never know what you will find until you look closely.
