Key West creatures.
Can you tell me the correct name of what is locally called a “crab spider” and the proper name of the flying insect also included. These were photographed in Key West, FL. Thanks…
Don Leinbach
P.S. an absolutely brilliant site!!

Hi Don,
Your spider is a Crablike Spiny Orb Weaver, Gasteracantha cancriformis, and the flying creature is a species of Crane Fly.
