A Female Weaver Ant Mimicking Spider

Myrmarachne plataleoides


Spotted it on a grassy area in a resort in Puerto Galera, Philippines Myrmarachne plataleoides, also called the Kerengga Ant-like Jumper, is a jumping spider that mimics the Kerengga or weaver ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) in morphology and behaviour. This species is found in India, Sri Lanka, China and many parts of Southeast Asia. Unlike the weaver ants, M. plataleoides does not bite people, and indeed seems rather timid. - wikipedia
