Comments & ID Thoughts

Peucetia longipalpis, spider was found about 3 feet off the ground on my hibiscus tree. There’s lots of flowers in bloom and I’ve recently struggled with these small, fuzzy white bugs killing my plants. They are not white flies. I’m hoping this spider is eating them because I didn’t see any near it. Unsure on sex. Spider is about the size of a silver dollar legs included.
