Wrap-around Spider

Dolophones sp.


Found in the center of an orb web at night


#striped Dolophones. This genus of spiders has only had a few of the species recognize. Recently the number of possible species has more than doubled. This example is the largest I have seen with an abdomen of 1cm wide. It also has striped legs and a reddish head. May be D. conifera

No species ID suggestions

Ahhh, so much easier to make out the shape of the spider. So difficult to get my head around the other image. Great spotting.
