Grass Crab Spider favorited by AntónioGinjaGinja Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 3 hours ago

I think that this spider is Runcinia insecta (formerly called as Runcinia albostriata, which is now known to be a synonym). The reason for my calling it Runcinia sp. is, of course, the question of distribution. I cannot find Philippines on any distribution list for R. insecta. Some years ago, I had this spider marked as present in Philippines, based on information provided by a website called "insectoid.info" which no longer exists. There are a few pictures (some of which look like mine) in https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/832328-...
