Long striped spider

Rucinja acuminata


The colors and patterns of this spider blend well with a dry leaf where it waits to ambush its prey. The two pairs of front legs are armed with spines typical of a crab spider. Head and body total length is 12mm.


It always stays low on grasses close to the ground. Common in open grass lands, forest margins, cultivated land and populated areas.
