Male crab spider, possibly <em>Bassaniana</em> sp.)

Male crab spider, possibly Bassaniana sp.)

While cutting back DSV, I was keeping an eye out for insects. Many small spiders, for example, jumping spiders, seem to like sitting on DSV, and others make little silken cases on them. I found this very small crab spider, but haven't identified it other than probably a crab spider in the genus Bassaniana, but it is certainly a male, as you can see from the clubbed palps.
