Having come inside after exploring the garden of the property where I was visiting - I felt a tickle on my forehead and gave it a flick. Then I saw movement on the table and there stood this tiny crab spider looking quite bewildered! So tiny at 4 mm.
''Mecaphesa asperata'', the northern crab spider, is a species of crab spider in the family Thomisidae, found in North and Central America, and the Caribbean. It is a species of the 'flower spiders', so-called because they generally hunt in similarly coloured flowers for visitors such as bees and flies, and is a much smaller nearctic relative of the better-known Goldenrod Spider ''.
''Mecaphesa asperata'' was formerly in the genus ''Misumenops'' under the name ''Misumenops asperatus''.
