Thank you for your question. I recommend contacting one of the Cooperative Extension specialists in the University of Arizona's Department of Entomology. See this website --
( -- and contact Peter Ellsworth, Dawn Gouge, or John Palumbo.

I give the giant crab spider, according to Dawn Gouge at AU. Thank you very much for your help in finding an answer to my question.



Fabulous, Damon!

I'm glad that UA Cooperative Extension could be of service.
