Caption: Lichen huntsman spider (Pandercetes gracilis) camouflaged against lichen on a twig. This small spider is found in Australia, as well as New Guinea, Maluku Islands, and Sulawesi. Individuals vary in colour, to match a range of different species of lichen, which improves their ability to ambush prey and conceals them from their own predators.
