Spotting mimic spiders is very hard and I had my first look at a mimic spider in a garden of a hotel in Pokhara. Fairly small and certainly got the mimicry dialed it certainly had its purposed stated out. The reason behind the mimicry is both as a defense against the ants and also to get to the larva of the ants.
