Observation of the Day - Common Patterned Ant-mimic Ground Spider

Check out this recent observation from Bug Camp, a Common Patterned Ant-mimic Ground Spider (Sergiolus montanus)! Myrmecotrophy is mimicry of ants by other organisms, and spiders are the most common art mimics. How do you think looking like an ant helps this spider?

The Willow Bend Nature Challenge is a fun June virtual challenge through iNaturalist, a free observation platform that can be used on your smart phone or computer. It acts as a place for people to record observations, learn how to identify organisms and interact with other enthusiasts and experts. Observations from iNaturalist also contribute to biodiversity science. Anyone can freely access and use this information.
