I found this spider the other day in my backyard. He-or more likely she-is a Mopsus Mormon. You may recognise this spider from the misunderstood spider meme and as you can Mopsus Mormon are quite amazing looking spiders with their vivid green and large eyes.

I haven’t caught a glimpse of one yet, but there are some Mopsus Mormon which due to their features and colouring are known as baboon face spiders (not to be confused with baboon spiders, especially for the squeamish).
