White Crab Spider (Thomisus _ _ _??)

The tiny white spider i found on my Lantana has found a new home in one of my Gazania – she’s been therefor 3 days now!

She looks identical in form to the Goldenrod Crab Spider or Flower Spider (Misumena vatia) of N America and Europe but which are not known to live South of the Equator. I believe this one is a member of a different family all together the Thomisidae and is of a genus i can’t locate?

White Crab Spiders (Thomisus spectabilis) are similar to this one but have a much more angular abdomen, but it’s the best description i have for now.

      Thanks for enjoying them. 🙂
