Comments & ID Thoughts

Species guess: SPINY MICRATHENA or MICRATHENA GRACILIS. I found this guy while walking through the forest to get some cool photos. I found him on my ankle, which is probably because my head caught a few webs as I was walking. So they probably make their webs in between leaves and/or branches.

Great photo! I like that you got her eyes and the top of her abdomen in the photo.
