The scientific name of G. taeniata oinokensis was chosen due to the original description by Strand, 1915. Although the G. taeniata mess is incredible. If you need same more indentification you can conntact me or send more images to identify. I'm currently working on Gasteracantha Catalog. The intention is to rediscribe every singel species and the whole genus.
The scientific name Gasteracantha crucigera was chosen due to the unique form of median spides. Look into the World Spider Catalog under Araneidae, Gasteracantha - and G. crucigera. Thera are all publications to this specimen inkluding images and derawings.
