Spiny Orb Weaver

Spiny Orb Weaver

The Spiny Orb Weaver Spider is one of the most colorful and easily recognized webbing spiders here in Southwest Florida. The Spiny Orb Weaver Spider is identified by its dorsum or abdomen which is usually white with black spots and large red spines on the margin. It resembles a very small space ship. The females are 5 to 10 mm long and 10 to 14 mm wide.

The webs of the Spiny Orb Weaver Spiders typically contain tufts of silk, which may prevent birds from flying into them. These unique looking spiders are found outside in foliage and wooded areas.
