Comments & ID Thoughts

male ground crab spider, Xyticus sp.?
He was is my bathroom on the sink rim. I put my phone perpendicular to spiders to block their retreat and to get a shot of their eyes. Many insects and spiders show how they react to a threat in front of them when I do that. This one raised his abdomen toward his head. It gave him a look of being bigger and having a “face” in his dorsal markings.
