I think it is a reflection, so you would say it is a crab spider? I didn't dare get closer that thing was huge!!

This is what I would call a huntsman spider. They are flattened with all retrodrade legs (all knees point backwards). They belong to the group of crab spiders (and that is their 'correct' name.)
Is the green dot a reflection of its eight eyes?
