It is a Crab Spider in family Thomisidae. I couldn’t identify it from the photo. We memorize the most common species that can be identified without a dissection microscope. The eye placement pattern would be one thing we would use. The eyes are one of the odd things about spiders. The different types have different numbers of eyes in different places on the head. Some eyes are flush with the body, some protrude, and they can vary in size and abilities.
