Gasteracantha ---> Macracantha
Forest. (Kaeng Krachan National Park)
Thank you Pong and Jakubko for the ID information.I assigned "Macracantha" :)
Thank you Gilma, Corbin and Mayra!
Thanks for the link, Pong. I see now, the whole genus did not transfer, just this species and perhaps a few others. :) Macracantha arcuata would be the correct scientific name, my mistake. Thanks for the correction, Pong.
Jakubko, You can update about transferred of spiders (FAM. ARANEIDAE) by Division of Invertebrate Zoology, American Museum of Natural History from this link http://research.amnh.org/iz/spiders/cata...
Quite an interesting spider
Yes thank you, I find it so lovely I have been reading about them. I will also check the link you send. Thank you.
Hi Gilma, the ID is Gasteracantha arcuata, and more can be read about it here: http://habitatnews.nus.edu.sg/guidebooks...
That is some beautiful spider, how would they use those long horns?! would love to read more about it, hope you get an ID
PongWira, from my readings, I cannot find anything about a genus transfer of Gasteracantha. They seem to be two definitive genera. Do you have a source?
Thank you Pong, Yuko and Stian!
Wow, amazing pictures Toshimi!
Wow! It blew my mind! :O
This genus transfer to Macracantha.
Thank you all for the nice comments!Thank you for the ID, Jakubko!
