貓蛛科 (Family Oxyopidae)
So much to do at KidSpace Museum, but it's this little Green Lynx spider (Peucetia Viridans) attending her egg sack that grabbed my attention.
(I'm pretty sure that it is Peucetia Viridans, but it was significantly smaller than the ones that I've seen in the past. There's a possibility that it could be P. longipalpis. With the location and small size, I wasn't able to see the chevron pattern on its back - but, I also wasn't able to see white hairs on the abdomen that would have identified it as P. longipalpis. With the coloration of the legs, I'm still going with P. Viridans, but I'd be appreciative if someone with more experience than I can positively identify it.)
Lynx spider is the common name for any member of the family Oxyopidae. Most species make little use of webs, instead spending their lives as hunting spiders on plants. Many species frequent flowers in particular, ambushing pollinators, much as crab spiders do. They tend to tolerate members of their own species more than most spiders do, and at least one species has been identified as exhibiting social behaviour.
