I do think your suggestion is a closer match.

It could be, Martin. Or this one: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/158... The problem is that there are so many variations of colors and shapes that I don't know who is mimicking who anymore...

Which beetle do you suppose it is mimicking?

AMAZING spotting, I have never seen such a spider before.
This looks like a female.

Yes, Lauren, I think so. Sometimes they raise both legs, which make them look even more with a beetle.

Looks so much like a leaf beetle, does he raise his leg to look like an antenna maybe?
