Running crab spiders are not common. They prefer the warm climate of the subtropics. There is a particularly wide variety of species in South America. Running crab spiders are characterized by four pairs of legs of equal length, the second of which can be a bit longer.
Although running crab spiders are classed as web building spiders, they do not spin webs to catch prey. They ambush their prey and catch it on the run. They also do not build moulting or overwintering places.
