i was home sick yesterday, and at one point couldn't live without a smoke...so i went into the backyard, and sat next to a dwarf ficus my roommate has on a table to sate my nciotine yearnings. right away i noticed a fat, happy (what i think to be) green lynx spider (Peucetia viridans) sitting on a leaf near teh top of the tree! it seemed very calm. compared to some of the photos i've found, there are differences in coloration, but the basic body structure seems to be the same. it definitely had vibrant yellows and greens, and the arrow pattern on the opisthosoma. i'm going to see if its still around, maybe let it stay as a guest for a while...
