Stephanopoides simoni female - closeup, La Isla Escondida, Colombia A tiny, yet visually spectacular crab spider. We found it as seen, seemingly not that well camouflaged in its environment, unless it is trying to mimic something we don&#039;t know about. It is deep orange all over, yet the abdomen is black with a clear, thick yellow ring. <br />
