Thomisidae, green ant mimic, Amyciaea albomaculata

Anbangbang, Kakadu National Park

There are spiders from several families which mimic green ants. This species hangs out near green ant nests and pounces on
wandering ants, then drops down with its hapless victim on a silk line while the ants are saying to one another "Where's Neville?"
