Clubionidae

One of the best ant mimics that I've ever seen. Notice the false-eye which occurs only on the right side of the head. The spider will reorient itself when it perceives motion such that the eye spot is always facing you:









Thanks for looking and commenting,
Paul

Though not sure if it beats this one from Guyana
