Juvenile bulbous abdomen spider
Originally on a Eucalyptus leaf with no real shape to the web. It moved to a different plant when it noticed me :)
Thank you Karen! I had no idea where to start and you definitely gave me that. I'll also bookmark the site you shared as we no doubt have similar spiders being so close :)
Cindy, I could be wrong on the ID. I use this Orange County web site for my spider ID's. I was looking and nothing "jumped off the page" until I got to the cobweb spiders and the pattern fit. Nice photos of your spotting. http://nathistoc.bio.uci.edu/spiders/ind...
This little spider was hard to photograph! It's the only bulbous abdomen spider I've seen on our property. I'm hoping to ID it with everyone's help. Thank you in advance.
