Is this another Green Lynx Spider?

It sat on the inner car door on the Hermon Mountain area, Israël, last december. It was really small, as you maybe can see from part of my index finger in the corner.

Hi Nike,
This is a Green Huntsman Spider.  We found a beautiful photo from France on TrekNature website, where it is identified as Micrommata virescens, a name also used on the Spiders of Slovakia website.  We found other images of Green Huntsman Spiders identified as Micrommata rosea on the NaturePhoto CZ website.  We still haven’t found much information on the range of the Green Huntsman Spider, though there are images online from France, Germany and Slovakia.  Huntsman Spiders in the family Sparassidae often lose legs, much like your specimen.
