Orb Weaver

January 27, 2010 | Caraça Natural Park, Minas Gerais, Brazil

This orb weaver was safely tucked away inside a leafy retreat.

The general shape puts me in mind of Acanthepeira species here in the US. There is at least one species, A. labidura, in Brazil. I couldn’t find any information on it though.

  1. Quite distinctive with that pure white stripe and fiery red eyes.
