Over 80% of the insects/spiders we encountered in the Yasuni National Reserve are unknown to science.  This was one of them.  This “tiger tarantula” is going through the lengthy process of being described by one of the biologists at the station.  What a lovely looking animal.

Tiputini, Ecuador.

Thomisus onustus

…is a species of Crab Spider (Thomisidae) which boasts a Palearctic distribution from Great Britain and Portugal in the west to Japan in the East. Like other crab spider species T. onustus exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism and color morphs with females growing almost 4 times the size of males, both males and females are highly variable in their coloration and typically match the color of whatever plant they rest on. Thomisus onustus is a pursuit predator and will typically lie in wait in flowers, waiting for a pollinator to unknowingly fall right into their trap.
