Comments & ID Thoughts

Misumenoides formosipes, White-banded Crab Spider. One of three photos. She was found one pale foliage and I moved her to the hood of a nearby car. The specks are pollen. This photo is filtered to show her dorsal markings. I still have the unfiltered original photos.

It’s probably a Misumenoides formosipes like you think it is, but I personally think it looks like a Misumenoides athleticus. But I’m really not sure since her dorsal marks more look like the male ones, so it’s probably not one.
