Long Spinneret Spider

Description:

This Hersiliidae spider is an adult female. They have evolved to camouflage themselves on tree barks. These Tree Trunk Spider run sideways and are always facing down the tree. Could possibly be the adult of http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/166... or just a different species. May also be the same species as http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/853... and http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/790...

Habitat:

On the tree trunk surface of a Dipterocarp tree along the Maliau Skybridge, Maliau Basin Study Center.

Notes:

It has already been a custom for me to search for Hersiliids every forest area I go. >>>Map accuracy : 5km diameter.
