Leucauge Argyrobapta

Description:

Leucauge (loo-kah-gee) is a spider genus of long-jawed orb weavers, with more than 170 species and fully pantropical distribution. The genus was first documented in Scottish zoologist Adam White's 1841 Description of new or little known Arachnida. Charles Darwin had suggested the name of the genus and collected the first specimen in May 1832, later named L. argyrobapta.
