Green Lynx Spider

Peucetia viridans


Large green Linx Spider. It captured a true bug heavier than itself to feed upon. In the last picture it has moved to it's favorite plant which looks just like it, covered in long spines on both the leaves and stems.


Heavy shrubbery along the highway between San Cristobal de Las Casas and Tuxtla Gutierrez, km 11.5, 865 meters.
