New rare Crab Spider

Postby laurence leong » Mon Feb 27, 2012 10:20 am

This was photographed about 20 years ago and published on page 84 of Dr Chua Ee Kiam's book, "Nature in singapore, Ours to protect". It seems that it is new to science and has no Latin name yet.
Recently, another one was seen, not far from where this was found, although it was not as colourful.

Yes, probably with Fuji Velvia slide. Can we publicise this new discovery more ?
