St. Andrews Cross Spider

Argiope pulchella


Basic colour of the spider is light brown. It has thin light greenish yellow bands across its legs and thick bands across its back. Length between end of one pair of legs to the other: 45mm. Body length: 11mm. It's quite cooperating during my photography session. It all the time tries to align its legs with the lace. Lace damaged during prey collection are seen repaired promptly.


Lemon tree/ bush. Warm to hot place, Murty River, Cooch Behar area.


This one was spotted on a low lying (good for us) lime tree.
