Heriaeus hirtus

Heriaeus hirtus

Heriaeus hirtus is a crab spider in the Heriaeus genus.
Green Hairy Crab Spider Area of conifer forest mixed with grasslands near Zadar, Croatia (June 1 ,2016).
ID tentative. I am not sure if is H. hirtus or H. graminicola..
One of the best camouflaged crab spiders I have ever seen! It apparently lives in these Rosa canina flowers and mimics the color of the sepals underneath, including the hair structures like in the plant. Thumbs up for mimicry!
