What a wonderful find ! I hope arachnologists in Sri Lanka get to see this record. I think this is where it is really important to have information on habitat, even if you don't provide the exact location.
Well done, Bhagya !

This is an excellent and a rare find !
This Platythomisus genus of crab spiders is NOT reported from Sri Lanka
And is a rare find in India as well . A range extension paper was published in about 2005 in India .
This could very well mean it is a new record from your country .
All the best :-)
