Lovely pale green spider hiding under a rectangular web. The spider is totally hidden from view but as we realized later, two sides of the web are free allowing the spider to simply jump out.


On the leaf of Alstonia scholaris plant. It remained there through the first day and was there the next day too...unfortunately it got alarmed when I handled the leaf to get a clearer shot (difficult to photograph clearly as it was UNDER the sheet-like web).

Ah! Thanks Atul...can a Huntsman spider be a lovely pale green? This one was.

not a lynx spider for sure ... it is a huntsman spider !
the web pattern is typical of a sparassid and Lynx spiders do not make such elaborate retreats

@ Atul...more like a green Lynx spider. Pale green and a jumper.
