About This Image

Another example of Misumena vatia. These spiders are common on flowers at this time of year. They can change their color from yellow to white, or from white to yellow, in about 5 to 6 days to match the flower they're sitting on (I also found a greenish one last year). Flies and other insects visiting these flowers are walking right into their trap. These spiders seem to have good eyesight, as they often retreat to the underside of the flower as you approach.

I recently had sonmh

I recently had sonmhtieg similar happen to me except my bed WAS actually full of spiders. I was about to go to sleep one night, when I saw a few tiny spiders on my blanket. I got up and looked at the foot of the bed and there were several dozen more. Then my eyes moved to the basket of freshly cleaned and folded laundry, and guess what...teaming with tiny spiders. I'm pretty sure an egg sac of baby spiders had just hatched ON my bed. Now usually, I hate killing spiders. I will take them outside or just leave them, but there were 100 baby spiders crawling all over my bed, and I wanted to go to sleep. So I spent the next hour and a half on a spider killing rampage with some tissues. I then spent the night on my futon in the next room, and washed my sheets and vacuumed very thoroughly in the morning. It was super traumatic.

Neon Yellow spider-pretty

Saw something bright yellow on my hot pink rose bush. Looked closer and it resembled a crab. All day it sat there catching other bugs. Neon yellow with pink/red markings on each side. I live in Wesleyville, Newfoundland Labrador and have never seen one before. It was very elegant looking.

I have a pic of this spider it was on my little cousins shoulder today at my nephews 2nd bithday,and I live in mb canada. Where are these from ?

i just saw one.

austin - May 17, 2012 10:52 AM EDT
i say one on my tree and i caught it, it can eat moths and flies. the spider bites the moth and/or fly and bites it, the vonom slowly works its way through the victim, liguifing the insides so he can slurp it up.

I believe i just saw one on my dog today. Only it was bright green and yellowish. I live in Japan son not sure if it was poisonous to my dog so I thumped it off of him then try to find it for a closer look with no luck. I will keep looking and perhaps get a pic.
Guest - Jan 07, 2008 05:54 AM EDT
i've never scene one until today found while watering plants. found your web site to identify. managed to get pictures
Guest - Nov 27, 2007 10:06 PM EDT
I found a spider like this at White Fish Dunes in Door County Wisconsin. I have a great picture of it and would like to share it on this web page. Is that possible?
Guest - Sep 04, 2007 01:08 PM EDT
I saw a yellow spider while walking a trail at the DeSoto State Park down by Missiouri Valley, Iowa this weekend on a family outing. My sister and I both wonder if it was dangerous also. Very pretty yellow, could hardly see it, it blended very well with the yellow flowers in was sitting on.
Guest - Jul 29, 2007 03:00 AM EDT
This spider eats insects like flies, bees, moths, etc. that visit the flower it's sitting on. Yes, I'd say they're a good thing to have in your garden. They're not at all harmful to people.
Guest - Jul 28, 2007 05:01 PM EDT
I found a bright yellow Crab spider on an red oriental lily this afternoon. July 28,2007 What do they eat? And are they a good thing to keep in one's garden?
Guest - Jun 25, 2007 06:25 AM EDT
we have one on a pink and yellow rose in Splott, Cardiff! she is lovely
Guest - Jun 24, 2007 07:44 PM EDT
I found one of these spiders 2 years ago and just found another one eating a bee! Thanks to the site I couls identify it.
Guest - Jun 20, 2007 12:22 AM EDT
Whilke watering my geraniums, I saw a bright yellow spider, with a red stripe down each side of its back on the flower. It is actually very pretty. I'm glad to see/;read that its not posionious.Thanks for all the info.
Guest - Jun 18, 2007 06:57 PM EDT
Yup straight to the net...i've never scene one until this weekend found on some yellow wild flowers i picked. It ended up in my sink....very cool spider! Thanks for this posting !
Guest - Jun 18, 2007 02:08 PM EDT
I think that I may have seen one of these spiders on my leg after swimming then sitting on the ground by some flowers. After this I began to do research on spiders to find out if the spider was dangerous or rare.I am twelve going on thirteen and wondering if this spider may be attracted to water or chemicals in pools. Are they?THANKS!

Great closeup of this yellow spider and lots of infomation here. Carol
Guest - Jun 04, 2007 06:48 PM EDT
It likes the box I put it in. such a pretty spider.
Guest - May 26, 2007 04:06 PM EDT
Hooray for this posting! Found one of these fellas on my day lilies this morning and went straight to the internet to research it. Very beautiful spider - will try to get a pic of it waiting with its front legs posed in strike mode (seems to be how she spends most of her time).
Guest - Apr 15, 2007 11:46 AM EDT
Have now had one of these spiders on my washing for last few days. Such a bright yellow!
Guest - Mar 31, 2007 04:57 PM EDT
Like others have said, I too came straight to the internet to find out what this beautiful, canary yellow spider was. It hitched a ride into the house on the lavender lilacs I'd cut. I took it back to the garden.
Guest - Sep 13, 2006 06:55 PM EDT
Today, Sept 13 2006 I have found what is after checking everything online, a female yellow crab spider. I was amazed and scared at first as I have never seen anything like this here and immediately knew it was non native to Canada, let alone PEI. How could this get here? Are they poisonous? I still have it in a bottle and promise to post a couple pics in the next day...Very very cool. What should I do with it? Being non native to here I am thinking kill it. Turn it over to the right people, or release it and hope it doesn't cross breed a new spieces here?
Guest - Aug 24, 2006 11:00 PM EDT
I saw a yellow "crab" spider - I guess, based on this webpage. It was brilliant! It was on some yellow flowers. Wow, the color was amazing.
Guest - Jul 31, 2006 09:05 PM EDT
A bright yellow flower spider was seen on my nasturtium, and crept to the underside while I messed with the camera. It had a red-brown chevron on the abdomen, matching the marks on the nasturtium petals. Are they particular about what they feed upon? Can they gather spicy nectar from spicy flowers with which to poison their prey??
Guest - Jul 15, 2006 01:49 PM EDT
saw one in the grass, bright yellow and long legs, not too far from a garden with yellow & orange flowers in bloom. Think it may have been hunting dung beetles as it was with what I was scooping
Guest - Jul 14, 2006 09:38 PM EDT
I have been watching and taking pictures of this spider for the past few days.While it sat in my pink roses,the two stripes on it's body were bright pink.Now it is in some yellow flowers and is starting to look as yellow as the flowers.
Guest - Jul 08, 2006 02:08 AM EDT
Saw one this evening inside a red rose! Looked like the yellow pistol/stamen until we looked closer. Very colorful.
Guest - Jun 30, 2006 11:01 AM EDT
FINALLY A LITTLE INFO ON THIS VERY COLORFULL SPIDER I FOUND ON MY YELLOW COLEOPSIS FLOWERS.IT ALSO HAS TWO RED STIPES ON EACH SIDE.WONDERED IF IT COULD BE HARMFUL.
Guest - Jun 28, 2006 01:54 AM EDT
We saw one today and i went to the net to figure it out. It was the exact same color of yellow as was the flower it was on -- yellow yarrow, and, like the respondent says above, it retreated to the underside of the yarrow when we approached.
Guest - Jun 27, 2006 05:33 AM EDT
No, they're not poisonous to humans. Their venom is very effective against insects, though.
Guest - Jun 26, 2006 11:44 AM EDT
we saw one yellow today. are they poision to humans or pets? thanks.
Guest - May 25, 2006 07:41 PM EDT
had one decide to make a fuzzy cocoon type web in cd player in the car - I thought it was just a piece of fluff and wiped it away only to have a bright yellow spider jump out and drop to the floor in the car - still haven't found it
Guest - Sep 04, 2005 04:55 PM EDT
I saw one around noon today. It was pure canary yellow. I moved it to flower garden and it hiked it's rear straight up.
Guest - Jul 18, 2005 09:37 AM EDT
All of the literature I can find, going back for decades, confirms that Misumena vatia can change its color. I have witnessed this myself with specimens caught in the wild, both adult and juvenile. Is there a link to Carroll's experiments somwhere? Does he have a web page? I'd like to read about his work on this subject. BTW, isn't Misumenoides formosipes a different species from M. vatia?
Guest - Jul 13, 2005 04:50 PM EDT
Misumenoides formosipes (crab spider) According to "Spiderman" Brian Carroll, this flower crab spider cannot change its color like a chameleon. He performed an experiment and disproved the myth that this spider can change to white or cream if placed on a white flower. What he did discover, however, is that if a yellow crab spider lays her eggs on a white-flowered plant, her offspring will be white, not yellow. Furthermore, if a white crab spider lays her eggs on a yellow-flowered plant her offspring will be yellow, not white.
Guest - Jul 10, 2005 03:59 PM EDT
I've never seen a yellow one. Saw a white one. Thank you for your info. Did same thing. Straight to net to find out. Going back to take pic. It has captured a wasp. Very interesting!
Guest - May 30, 2005 10:49 PM EDT
Thanks for the info. I had only seen the white phase. Lucky you to capture this one in action.
Guest - May 30, 2005 12:51 PM EDT
I had never seen one until today. It was sitting inside my yellow daylily and I was amazed. I had to come straight to the internet to investigate this species. I am glad you had this posting. I wish I had taken a picture too.
