[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This crab spider was found sitting on an 'umbrella' of Artedia squamata (Apiaceae, carrot family). Perhaps this spider belong to a species of Synaema globosum (Fabricius, 1775). In some books a generic name can be spelled as Synema.

S. globosum is mainly found in the Mediterranean area (e.g., this specimen has been shooted near Ariel, Samaria). The background color in this species can be quite variable, from off-white to dark orange.
