Furrow Orb-weaver

Larinioides cornutus


The spider seemed to be around the size of a Penney ($0.01 USA), if not slightly smaller. This could have been just after it's transition of a sling. (I am not sure the size ratio for ages in this type.) I could not identify, if it was male or female. The spider was seem with a brown and black pattern, which would make great camouflage in wooded areas. The black near the head, seemed very shiny.


This specimen was found approximately at 3:30 pm Eastern Time, in the shade under the parking structure. Temperature during the sighting was around 77 degrees F. Humility 56% and partly cloudy.


As I rarely see this spider I am not sure of it's life span, population, etc. If there is a classification I welcome corrections. Reference in helping identify was through Spider ID website.
