Eusparassus huntsman spider

Eusparassus walckenaeri


A sub-adult Eusparassus walckenaeri huntsman spider, spotted resting among the leaves of a dandelion, in Nea Demetrias, Volos city, Greece. This is a common and harmless spider of the Eastern Mediterranean. It is characterized by its large body size (5 cm) that looks even larger because of the long legs always laterally extended, and by an iridescent light which may be observed on its outer surface. It can be found in open ground as well as inside houses where it eats small and large insects, especially cockroaches.
