I believe this is the 1st Tiny Crab Spider in NT.
I have been trying to look for this tiny crab spider ID, hope someone can provide some info, thanks.
The size of this spider about 2-3mm of body size and as you can see it comes in 3 colours with half transparent.
Because it is too small, I need to use "Macroscopic Lens adapter" to capture this tiny spider.
