A green lynx spider preys on a stink bug, which an ant is fighting over. This wandering spider belongs to the genus Peucetia and family Oxyopidae. It is 0.7-2.1 cm long and does not build a web. Instead, it hides among the leaves of flowering plants to prey on insects. This is a beautiful spider, which is most common in the plains and lowlands of central and southern Taiwan. In July and August, it can be seen in Dakeng, Taichung City. As I was on the No. 1 hiking trail in Dakeng, I saw this spider preying on a stink bug. Below it, an ant was trying to wrestle it away. This is a rare image.
