  4. Actually, from what I know, the species of Spiders from the genus are known as Brid's Dropping Spider. The mimicry is more toward's Bird's Dropping rather that lizard, gecko, mantid or snake.

    There is an interesting article about this Spider that can pulsates and change the colours of its abdomen.
    Check out the article here :
