This is the first time I’ve seen one of these interesting spiders, this fellow was on the cucumber plants, he was really odd looking with a fat, flat back, I didn’t recognise it as a spider at first but when I saw him I had to grab my camera.
This seems to be a spider from the Dolophones family. This webpage HERE has a couple of examples of this amazing family of spiders but I still haven’t ID’ed this red and black one yet.
