Male Orbweaver  (two photos)
Larinioides patagiatus


I don't think I'd ever seen a male Larinioides until this day on Antelope Island.  It really threw me.  I couldn't figure out
what species it was, although it bore a resemblance to the other female Larinioides I'd photographed.  This was a
beautiful male spider and he was defending his territory from my camera.  Carol Davis, 5-18-2009
