Cyclosa fuliginata |
(as presented on the Atlas of Living Australia)
female: 11 mm|
male: 7 mm
In a small orb web that varies in appearance and is limited for male specimens
This species is is not known to cause illness in humans
Note that the appearance of this species is rather different from that of other Cyclosa species and it is generally agreed that this spider probably is
not a genuine Cyclosa species and will eventually be assigned a different generic name. Curiously, the available images of the female more nearly resemble a
Cyclosa species than is true for the male.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Several other araneids, at least some of which are referred to as Araneus species.
