Genus: Poltys


Poltys is a genus of orb-weaver spiders. Many species are cryptic and are known to masquerade as leaves and twigs during the day, and build an orb web at night to capture prey. The shape of the abdomen which often gives the impression of a rough and broken branch can vary among individuals within a species.


Seen near a small forest.
