Venusta Orchard Spider 2 by leopardwolf Venusta Orchard Spider 2 by leopardwolf
Little jewels of spiders, this species is. Found several of these late one afternoon on a walk in the park.

Trying to take pictures of a very tiny spider, in the shade of trees, in the wind, with the sun setting. Doesn't lend to the best macro images. ;)


Venusta Orchard Spider ( Leucauge venusta )



Interesting info:

Body length (excluding legs) of adult female ranges from 4.5-8 mm; adult males range from 3.5-4 mm.

The genus name Leucauge is Greek for “with a bright gleam,” and it is actually the only spider name created by Charles Darwin himself (Cameron 2005). The specific epithet, venusta, is Latin for charming, elegant, or beautiful.
