    Thanks to Kevin Williams for the ID.

    Photo from Udzungwa mountains, Tanzania.

    Model and mimic were found with 5 metres of each other and were brought within close proximity for comparative purposes.

      How do you know the spider is the mimic? Presumably both venomous? Fascinating example.
