Oxyopes sertatus

Oxyopes sertatus (ๆ–œ็บน็Œซ่››).

A a small (usually slightly under or over a centimetre in length) and very common lynx spider in Changsha: in warm or mild weather they are often laying in wait on reeds or leaves. They have long black setae on all their legs and a strange geometry: their abdomens form a stretched isosceles triangle, have two small eyes on their front and six larger eyes arranged hexagonally on the top of their heads.
