Beautiful, :wink:
wonderful spider, what habitat did your friend find it?
If we love our children, we must love our earth with tender care and pass it on, diverse and beautiful, so that on a warm spring day 10,000 years hence they can feel peace in a sea of grass, songs from the birds, and can find joy in being alive.

Looks like some sort of Lynx spider (Oxyopidae) to me.

You're good Theraspoid.
I did some researching too and that spider looks to be a male Oxyopes salticus (striped lynx spider).
