Cyclosa turbinata (Trashline Orbweaver) ♀.
| The Trashline Orbweaver (Cyclosa turbinata) decorates its web with dead bodies of insects and other debris. This decoration forms a vertical line and the spider blends into it. Females of C. turbinata differ from the similar C. conica "by being smaller in size and having a pair of anterior dorsal humps." Notice that I rotated this photo by 45 degrees. |
