Comments & ID Thoughts

Some type of lynx spider. Maybe a green lynx spider, but the body is more brown than the ones I've seen pictures of.

Hi, I think this is a green lynx. The tricky thing was that they can change color by altering the chemical balance in their body. This species has a range from nearly colorless, pale yellow, green, pink, to maroon. The consistent clue to their identification is the strip down the top of the abdomen. It has an line of arrow-shaped markings that reflect light.
