This creature was fairly large. It is on the side of my tent at the Winter Star Party. I was not the only person to notice it, or to photograph it. It stayed on the tent for over an hour.

Moved from Beetles.

...this is Lagocheirus araneiformis, a widely distributed Neotropical species that just sneaks into southern Florida (as subspecies stroheckeri). It breeds in tourist tree (Bursera simarubra).
