    Amazing what a tissue "floor" and an envelope "wall" will do eh ?

    Odd looking fellow... Great shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    Definitely a bit odd. Different from the usual jumping spiders we get.
    Thanks :)
    Translucent at least anyway.
    I dunno, might be a problem, think of how much more stuff you don't want to see, you'd have no choice in seeing.
    Wuss, this little fellow would have been lucky to have been 5mm long.
    Thanks :) Certainly different.
