Miagrammopes sp

Description:

From a distance, this 7mm spider looks just like a dead leaf hanging in from a web.The interesting thing is- if we blow some air to the web it is sticking into, it will even oscillate like a dead leaf sticking to a web..! In the 3rd pic, even we can see its eye.

Habitat:

Thick bush or large group of plants.

Notes:

Family-Uloboridae.
