Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans)

First I’ve seen in 2014.

While mostly beneficial….capturing pest insects…this beauty also has a propensity for capturing beneficials, including many pollinators such as bees, wasps and syrphid flies.
