Spiderday (the ninth)

Here’s your ninth edition of SPIDERDAY! Some arachnid-related links from the past week.

Please note: I’m just heaving off to the Yukon for a couple of weeks of remote field work (it will involve arachnids!). Spiderday will likely return on 18 July.

Wow - this is a Thomisidae (crab spider) that's an ant-mimic. In Australia, of course. Photo by Alex Wild.
