Comments & ID Thoughts

Not entirely sure which spider this is my first thought was a green crab spider maybe? Was found in a play area of a nature centre I was visiting, weather was around 15 degrees, any help with identifying it would be awesome!

Yes, I agree this is a Crab Spider (Thomisidae), it looks like Diaea dorsata. I need to make a species page to file it when I have more time.
