CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Crab Spider (Thomisidae family)
This tiny speck of a spider is perplexing to get a positive identification.

So, I submitted to Bugguide hoping it *may* be Synema viridans but without having the spiders “in hand”, even experts can’t decide. Other possibilities include Diaea sp.,
