Arabesque Orbweaver Spider (Neoscona arabesca)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Arabesque Orbweaver Spider (Neoscona arabesca)

One of the Spotted Orbweavers. Don’t let the macro shot scare you…Tiny….about the size of a pencil eraser.

Larval host: Ichneumon Wasp (Acrotaphus wiltii) source:

Diet: insects


Shown on Florida Native Plant: SHYLEAF (Aeschynomene americana)

My take:
Dont be Spooked by Spiders
