Wow! I’d be very interested to find out what this super-fancy crab spider is. Family Philodromidae, the Running Crab Spiders?

Vonpaulus

I wonder if those hind legs are compatibile with the family Philodromidae; they look too short to me. My Guess is Thomisidae.

Ah, you’re right. I wasn’t thinking about that. What do you think of Genus Mecaphesa? Check out this BugGuide.net page:

Vonpaulus

I think you got the right genus.
