GREEN LYNX SPIDERS

Green Lynx Spider (Peucetia viridans)
Lynx spiders get their name from the way that they sometimes pounce on their prey in a catlike fashion. These spiders spend their time hunting for insects in bushes and low plants. They are fast runners, but can occasionally be seen lying in wait for prey beside flowers. They build no web for prey capture, but they do release a silk dragline as they hunt among leaves.
Look For: Bright green, cream, or tan body; legs are yellow with black spines.
Length: 5/8".
Habitat: Fields, woods.

Range: Southern U.S.
Bite: While the Green Lynx spider aggressively attacks its insect prey, it very seldom bites humans.

This was a big one, about 2" across. It's abdomen glowed in the dark slightly, like a firefly, which is what caught my eye. Am I correct on the ID? I'm in NC, USA. The abdomen seemed much thicker than the lynx spider photos on your website.

Reply: What a lovely closeup. I suspect it is a lynx spider that has adapted to its surrounding by changing colour!! - glen

Dear Glen, Please help me identify this spider. Is it a lynx spider, and if it is, the abdomen of this spider is more large for it's species. Can it be harmful? Thank you.

I thought you might be able to identify this spiky legged critter. I live in Tennessee and it was nesting on one of my Rose of Sharon trees about 2 years ago. I keep looking and I haven't seen any other ones that even look close to this one. I kind of miss the creepy little dude. Thanks, Mike

Hello Glen, Found this active spider during mid-day. Size of leg spread approx. 1.0-1.5 inches in diameter. Legs noticeably "hairy" and distinct "cross pattern" on abdomen. Any ideas? Location is Newcastle in Northern California, near the Sierra Nevada foothills. Much appreciated, tT

We found this spider (the green thing) and it's babies in our berry bushes. The closest thing I found to it was a sac spider. I'm not sure if that is what it is though. It did build it's nest in leaves. We found a couple of the same ones but they were not green like that. They were brown and they were on brown leaves.

Glen, My Daughter and I found this beautiful woman, on our Plumeria. We have been watching her from b4 she Lay her eggs. Was wondering why, when spiderlings were about to hatch, she moved them to another tree just above Plumeria. Since then, we can not find her, to enjoy the fruits of her labor:( she had become a part of family and has been given the name Lynxy, (original, I know). We are very interested in all spiders and your site has been great for learning what we need to know about different spiders around town. Thanks and keep it up! hope everyone enjoys the pics.

The fifth picture (180121) is a green lynx spider, I think. We found this one on a building in front of the playground down the road. Please feel free to use any of these pictures if you'd like, but can you just let us know what the second picture is of. Thanks! Amber

Photo taken on October 3, 2011. We have quite a few of these on the property. They are great to have around during love bug season! They set up snares along the house and are very interesting! Forgot to mention we are in Eustis, FL. I thought I had one of a ma and her billions of babies but I'm having trouble finding it. Jessica

Hi, I've combed your excellent website, spiderzrule!, and several other sources, but can't find a match for this spider I've found. Because of its barbed legs, I'm guessing some kind of lynx spider, but I don't know. Can you help? Here are the details: What: spider, 1 cm long, suspended from a porch post above a garden and lawn for long period of time (over an hour). Its green spots appear luminescent or sparkling to sight. Where: Southeastern Pennsylvania, USA. Suburb of Philadelphia. When: July 2011. Summer. Thanks for your website -- It has helped me with other identifications! Scott

I was following a deer and her fawn with my camera through a field last summer in Norris, TN. The weed and brush was up to 7ft.high in areas. I saw this beautiful spider just seconds before my face brushed into it's perch. It was the small egg sac dangling that caught my eye. I had to really look hard to see it. Since I took the picture I have looked for it to find out what kind it was. Thanks to this website I was able to identify my spider. The Green Lynx Spider. Thanks! -- Your brother in Christ, James

Hi Glen I'm also tossing in some shots of green lynx spiders, with dinner, and with offspring. They live on my roses, and keep the aphids at bay. I've been living peacefully in harmony with them for several years. The pix people have sent you, of the spiders all curled up after people have sprayed them make me sad. Too bad they couldn't have taken them outside. Peace~ Trish;
