What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

This bug looks like a kernal of corn. We found it crawling on our lawn furniture in Pleasant Valley, PA. What is it?
thanks,
Lynne Otrok

Hi Lynne,
This is a Crab Spider in the genus Misumena. These spiders do not build webs, but usually wait on flowers to ambush their flying prey. The spiders have some camoulfage ability, changing colors with their surroundings. Perhaps yours just stepped off of a sunflower.
