Green, candy sprinkles Crab Spider - Diaea livens
Big Basin, HQ Meadow area, Santa Cruz County, California, USA
August 16, 2014
Size: 15 mm spread of arms
This is on one of the new Redwood Railings on the walkway to the store.
We wondered if if could see it's back with those eye arrangements and decided it could from the third photo. Though it appears to be a Male.... if it's got eyes in the back of it's head it should be a Mom spider, right?
