Banded Garden Spider

Argiope trifasciata


Larger white body with orange/brown stripes. Very small head with two prominent eyes. Legs are black and orange patterned.


Well we found this out in my shops yard. I've never seen a spider like this one. We get a lot of imported material though. Mexico, brazil some parts of America and Canada so I'm not sure.


The guys put this spider in an extra large coffee cup. I don't think it was doing well in there. It was very lethargic and disoriented. Nobody at my shop had seen a spider like this one.
