Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

The green spider may be a green lynx spider. Not sure of the brown spider that was being consumed by the green lynx spider. It was the brown spider’s web that the green spider was on.

The brown one is an orbweaver.


Yes, the brown one is probably a Hentz Orbweaver, Neoscona crucifera. The attacker is a Green Lynx, Peucetia viridans. Fangs to the head! That’s some harsh Spider VS Spider action! Thank you for sharing this, we rarely see photos of spiders preying on other spiders.
