Brown Flower Spider or Camaricus formosus (লাল  কাঁকড়া মাকড়সা) is among the most attractive spider species found in Boisa Beel region. Their red and yellow combination gives them an additional charm. They are crab spiders and belongs to the family of Thomisidae. Like other members of this family they too never found making webs for hunting purpose. Rather they remains still under leaves or in leaf-folds and so on. And make sudden attack when any prey is found passing by- really an interesting characteristic.

Though present in a great number they are little tough to be found out frequently because of their such choice of living. This image is taken from eastern part of Boisa Beel.
