Re: previous "guest", I think you had it right the first time: they ARE harmless...
sorry ARE NOT harmless to humans...glad I read my own comment!
These things are constantly on my rose bushes! I don't know if it will hurt them or not, but so far they just sit there and never move till I spray them off. I'm glad I know now that they are harmless to humans cause I have little ones--San Antonio, TX
I encountered a spider in my garage here south of Dallas, TX that looks somewhat like the green lynx featured on this website. With legs extended it might measure 1 1/4 inches across. However, it's abdomin appeared nearly twice as large and it did not have the stiff hairs or barbs on its legs. Could be a variant of the green lynx, perhaps a female great with eggs yet to be laid? If I could figure out how to attach a photo to this comment, I would.
Thanks for helping me identify this spider! Have several on my tomato plants in Bosque county. Took many pictures to share with the children in my classroom. A very pretty spider.
These spiders aren't dangerous to humans. A bite should only be a minor irritation like a bee sting. There shouldn't be any need to worry, but like anything else, if it causes more of a problem than expected, see a doctor.
i found one in the shower and bit my sister in Dallas,Texas.R they harmful or dangerous?
I work at Collin County Adventure Camp in Anna Texas, a YMCA run and county owned outdoor education facility. We often find these beautiful spiders located in detritus of sunflowers and encompassing the large Eryngo flowers that occupy our prairie. The kids love these spiders and I am so glad that your picture helped us in identifying what they are. Thank you for this excellent site.
