Crab spider (Epicadus heterogaster) photcredit goes to Geoff Gallice on flickr

Epicadus heterogaster, purple form, Yaupi - by Geoff Gallice. The females try to pass themselves off as flowers. Properly posed in a bouquet of similarly colored orchids, she will fool the occasional fly.

Flower mimic spider. I never thought I would say this - but that's the *nicest* looking spider I've ever seen. still hate them, but that ones nicer than the others!
