Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans)

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

This spider does not construct a web capturing prey by grabbing it when it gets close. It will capture pest insects but also will be found with pollinators in its clutches which may upset some, but I’ve seen it with stink bugs and leaffooted bugs and similar so it is quite beneficial in my book.
