Male Ant Mimicking Spider

Myrmarachne

Description:

Found this male ant mimicking spider few hours ago in a citrus tree. It's windy, and luckily this one is very cooperative and doesn't move a lot and it takes me some time to take more decent photos . This one is a male ant mimic. You can easily identify it because of its elongated mouth parts.

Habitat:

citrus plant. grassy areas. mostly where ants are.
