Yellow zebra spider

Verrucosa zebra


The zebra spider is found in secondary and primary forests in the brazilian and argentine Atlantic Forest, and feeds on small arthropods that fall into its web. This spider was found under the leaf of a shrub in a secondary forest as I walked on a trail.


This spider was under a guava tree leaf, in an area that has been reforested long ago and today is a well established secondary forest.


Although this species is well distributed geographically, it is considered rare because of their nocturnal habits, which makes difficult your sighting.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

That looks like a smiley face when you are far away.🤔
