Yellow Crab Spider

FAMILY: Thomisidae | GENERA: Misumenops, Misumenoides, Misumena, others
Flower spiders have bright colors which allow them to blend in with the flowers on which they wait for prey. Some flower spiders are able to change color to become camouflaged on different kinds of flowers, although the color change may take a few days. Pictured below is a flower spider from the Misumenops genus and three views of Misumenoides formosipes. These and related crab spiders are commonly found on Kentucky wildflowers and flowering plants (like milkweed and Queen Anne's Lace). Thanks to Dr. Gary Dodson from Ball State University for help with flower spider identifications, along with biological information about these genera
