Two-tailed Tamopsis Tamopsis genus male. I understand these spiders are more commonly found on tree bark in regards camouflage, but this one seen building a web between flower stalks. <br />
Beautiful little spider, just 5 mm body length and I noted the extra long spinnerets on this species which gives rise to the common name. <br />

  2. Lovely! It looks so delicate and really stands out on the stalk - but, maybe not the best spot for it to build a web in that case! Posted one year ago
  3. Wow! Look at that perfection! Posted one year ago
