Comments & ID Thoughts

This spider was quarter size and wasn’t very fast-moving. The front legs are much longer than the back. I did a few searches and the closest thing I could find was a crab spider? Thoughts appreciated!

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 This is a Crab Spider (Thomisidae) in the genus Xysticus.

Possibly an Elegant Crab Spider, Xysticus elegans. (These can be tough to tell apart with certainty though.)
