Lynx Spider?

Asked July 6, 2019, 2:52 PM EDT

Is this a Lynx spider? If so, I thought they only lived in Southern states and Africa. It’s on the side of a lawn chair. Tiny, and neon green colored with a light brown center.

Hello,

I don't think this is a lynx spider. We do not have any known populations of spiders from that family in Alaska.

It is difficult to know exactly what kind of spider it may be from these photos. I suspect this is a spider species that is native to Alaska.
