Tree Stump Spider spotted by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 31 minutes ago

Arachnida; Araneae; Araneidae; Poltys illepidus C. L. Koch, 1843 (type). I have only three photos of this spider. I had saved them as "Poltys sp." because they looked like Poltys illepidus, but not close enough to be sure. Then I came across pictures of a female P. illepidus in http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spide... and that appears to be right.

Spotting spotted by momsavang Columbus, Georgia, United States 35 minutes ago

I feel like I’ve ID’d this over before but couldn’t nail it down this time. About 2 inches. Green W marking on back dark abdomen with tan segmentation up the "spine," clear wings with black and green veining.

Possibly one spotted variant, but it's taken on a lot of damage. About 1.5 in wingtip to wingtip. Brown, bark-like coloration.

The photo makes this moth look grey; however it appeared more brownish irl. Lighter segmentation along the body, wings had some waves and dotting.
