Philaeus chrysops, male

Normal body length is 7 to 12 mm, but 5 mm small males do occur. Unusual for spiders, the males are often bigger. The sexes differ extremely: males are very colorful with a glaringly red opisthosoma (chrysops means "golden eye" in Greek). The males have a dark brown cephalothorax with two broad longitudinal white stripes behind the rear eyes. The abdomen is bright orange-red on the back and the sides, with a longitudinal black stripe in the center and black shoulders. The long, slender legs are dark with the patellae and most of the tibiae of the first two pairs bright orange-red. The cephalothorax of the female is similar to the male, but with much smaller white stripes. The back of her abdomen is largely covered with a very broad brown band with two narrow longitudinal white stripes and a few white marks near the sides. The remainder of the abdomen and the sides are orange, the legs light brown with dark brown rings.[1]
The spider prefers open and warm areas.

tokina una buonissima lente, i dettagli sul tuo ragnetto sono splendidi, per cui complimenti sia per la foto che per il ragnetto ripreso che e- molto bello,

per la foto in pp, personalmente avrei aumentato la luce, oppure schiarire le ombre per recuperare ancora dettagli dalle parti scure,

un saluto tino,
