(Menge, 1875)

Tibellus maritimus is a species of running crab spider in the family Philodromidae. It is found in North America, Europe, Caucasus, Russia, Central Asia, and China. [1] [2] [3] [4]


Tibellus maritimus can be reliably distinguished from some similar species such as T. oblongus and T. asiaticus by the absence of two dark spots on the dorsal abdomen. T.maritimus is the only Tibellus in the Canadian portion of its range that does not have these spots. [4]

Araneomorphae Infraorder of arachnids

The Araneomorphae are an infraorder of spiders. They are distinguished by having chelicerae (fangs) that point diagonally forward and cross in a pinching action, in contrast to the Mygalomorphae, where they point straight down. Most of the spiders that people encounter in daily life belong to the Araneomorphae.

Philodromidae Family of spiders

Philodromidae, also known as philodromid crab spiders and running crab spiders, is a family of araneomorph spiders first described by Tord Tamerlan Teodor Thorell in 1870. It contains over 600 species in thirty genera. Most are dull colored- brown, gray, yellowish or mottled with a leaf-like cardiac mark on the anterior dorsal abdomen, and seldom reach above 10 millimetres (0.39 in) long. None of the species build webs, but they do use silk for draglines and egg sacs.
