Tree-Stump Spider moulting- Poltys cf. illepidus ♀

Most photos of Tree-Stump Spiders are taken while in resting stage, where the legs are all clumped together, making the superficial details less observable. I was lucky to find one moulting; took a few shots for record hehe XD

 

Tree-Stump Spiders are so-called due to their unique camouflage (note the abdominal spines) that look like tree branches.
