Comments & ID Thoughts

I think this is a Giant Crab Spider. I was sitting on the porch when it dropped out of nowhere and just sat next to me. Our house was sprayed for bugs yesterday, so I'm guessing that he was slow moving because of that.

Yes, I agree. Your spider appears to be Olios giganteus, a Giant Crab Spider.
