[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A visitor on November 30:

this 14 mm long female Green huntsman spider (Aranea; Sparassidae (=Eusparassidae, Heteropodidae); Micrommata rosea (= M. virescens; M. viridissima) (Clerck); Grüne Huschspinne) was a surprise visitor near my window.

The spider is well adapted to hunting without a net inside shrubs. The camouflage however no longer serves its carrier well during winter time! This winter began exceptionally sunny, dry, this might explain the wanderings of this spider at this date. The species is a first on TN and the only representative of the family North of the Alps .

For ID I used E. Stresemann, 1961. Exkursionsfauna von Deutschland. Volk+Wissen, Berlin, GDR

Lieber Dieter,
Du hast Vorsprung auf den Kalender!! Wahrscheinlich hat dich diese hübsche kleine Spinne so verzaubert, dass Du heute mit morgen verwechselt hast :-)
Schönes feines Bild dieser grünen Huschspinne. Gute Bildschärfe und dezentrierte Präsentation, natürliche Farben auch.
Herzlich grüsst
