Found today in Loja Province (Vilcabamba, as well as Qiñara previously). Has six spines, yellow and black (other color combinations are evident as well). Included some of the web weaving as well if that helps .


Mainly habituates amongst fruit trees, berry bushes, or any negotiation with wood branching. I have found them in the cloud forest as well as amazon basin.
