With April flowers blooming... I've been seeing a lot of crab spiders sitting waiting for small pollinators on large flowers. So far I've seen white and yellow varieties (sp. unknown, possibly genus Misumena) and I've been wondering... are there biotypes of crab spiders adapted to specific flower species from state to state? I know pink spiders and green spiders occur in some species, but are there crab spiders for nearly every color of flower in their native range?
