Western Spotted Orbweaver

Neoscona oaxacensis


Large body cream and brown with black legs. Large in size for a spider. As seen in compared to the leaves and flowers. Web was also large in size


Bushes, shrubs, trees Crossing webs from one bush to the next or from trees other trees.


Difference I seen between the images of the Western Spotted Orbweaver and this, is the solid black legs. Have not seen any images of this type. Very large. Seemed just smaller and thinner in legs then a Tarantula
