http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/140...Hi Johan, this same spider is now bigger, maybe new spot can help us ID more accurate?
Looks like the link is not active any more.
That is very interesting yes, I have a spot of the same spider when it was smaller, or shall I say in the same area and thought it might be the same one. I cant get the link open you gave me, could you please send again. Thanks for all Johan!
At this point I'll stick with Nephila sp. On the senegalensis the lines is across the body and not along.Colouring of Orb Web Spiders: InterestingThe waste substances are chemically converted to harmless crystals and are stored in special cells. These white colored guanocytes are located in-groups and can be seen through the skin. This shows up as a very special pattern on the back of the orb weaving spiders.http://ednieuw.home.xs4all.nl/Spiders/In......
thank you maria!
True, I believe it is the Nephila senegalensis.
I think it is from the NEPHILIDAE family
