This was observed at the SpiderIndia Meet 2019, a "2mm" Crab Spider of 𝗚𝗲𝗻. 𝘓𝘺𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝗦𝗶𝗺𝗼𝗻, 𝟭𝟴𝟵𝟱 [Family: Thomisidae Sundevall,1833] in a tiny leaf mine of a sapling on a forest trail. This is my second sighting of this genus in a similar leaf mine. The kind of niche every spider prefers is indeed so interesting at times.
