Ant Mimic Spider from Greece

Ant Mimic Spider
Hi Bugpeople,
It moved like an ant, and waved its front legs like antennae. I didn’t even realize it was an arachnid until I looked real close. I spotted it in Zakynthos, Greece last summer. Does this intriguing little spider have a name? As always, thanks for your time, your wealth of knowledge, and for providing the great resource that is What’s That Bug?.

Hi Christina,
Not surprisingly, your spider really is called an Ant Mimic Spider. Though we can’t tell you the species you have photographed, we can tell you that Ant Mimic Spiders are in the family Corinnidae.
