Hi Angiud. A belated congratulations on your SOTD!
You have an interesting tittle for this spotting but sadly you need to remove the tittle because that field is specially reserved for a common name only. You can use the "Jumping spider-mimicking Derbid Bug" in your description for the common name of this spotting. As for the "OMG a spider!" part, you can place it in the description or notes. Thank you.

Congrats angiud ! What a disguise ! Amazing ! :)

Congrats angiud, your amazing example of mimicry has earned you Spotting of the Day! This tiny planthopper is a master of disguise, mimicking a jumping spider!
