Green Lynx Spider

Peucetia viridans


Small bright green spider with dark spots and hairs or barbs protruding from all along its legs.


This spider favors green plants. Hence the backside of the yellow flower has the green stem.


I spotted it in a field of yellow flowers at River Creek Wildlife Management Area near Cairo, GA. As I came upon the flower I saw the tiny legs protruding around and to my surprise was this amazing looking spider. It pays to actively investigate instead of just walking.
