Huntsman spider


Maybe a type of Huntsman spider? (Although it’s definitely not brown.) It has not moved more than a few centimeters in the past 16 hours despite rain, then strong sun, and now wind and cold.


Near forest below Mount Penteli, Greece.

Thank you Brian38. It looks like you’re correct; altho this spider seems somewhat flatter and more shield-shaped in the abdomen, nothing else looks as close as the walckaeri.

Looks like a Huntsman spider possibly Eusparassus walckenaeri.
