At last after a good few years of looking for it I have now found it in my area of Germany. smile.gif
What I believe to be Argiope bruennichi? Can anyone say if I am right or not.

Also found this one....

Never seen one quite like this before!(Hard to see in the pic but the abdomen is a very pale light green in colour)
Is this an Araneus sp.?

Cheers

Been advised that the second one could well be Araneus quadratus? Seems reasonable to me from looking at the may other images of this sp. on the net. Never knew there were so many colour forms of this species. smile.gif

Beutiful specimens the both of them. How big is the Araneus? And somthing about the angle in which you took that picture is weird - you took it from under the sipder?

Yes I agree with you! Wonderful spiders! I remember seeing a Argiope sp. with markings like yours it was small though. As for the last one I would say it's a Araneus sp.. I don't know which one though, but they're both gorgeous! wub.gif

I think it is Argiope bruennichi that is occuring in the southern part of Sweden. It is not supposed to occur here but It have found its way in somehow! biggrin.gif

Hobos spiders is also occuring here now.

Great find Chris.

Argiope is extending its range in Britain - used to be restricted to the South coast, but has 'marched' north in recent years. Most northerly record in Britain is in Derbyshire, and it joined the Welsh species list this year too (in South Wales), still hasn't reached my area yet, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.

Autumn is the best season to look for them because that's when they are adult. They seem to like rough grassland and build their webs low down in the grass.

Can I ask where abouts in Somerset they're supposed to be? I wouldn't mind having a look for them, if their range isn't too far from me.

That's a cool looking spider! I think I've seen them before or some thing similar looking. Where are you from any way? That might help with the ID of the spiders that look like the one in your pick that live here in upstate NY.

@Fry: That one´s a S. grossa. You can see it on the back pattern (i only know one steatoda sp. which lokks like that).

Around our house we can find A. bruennichi everywhere. Last summer I went out and found 20 in 10 minutes.
The spider with the green back should be Araneus quadratus (they are very variable, can be red, white or even green).

This beauty also goes by the Yellow and black Argiope ( Argiope aurantia ). Just to be sure is the spider in your pic go by the Latin name Argiope aurantia?
