Araneus marmoreus var. pyramidatus (Clerck, 1757)

Araneus marmoreus, commonly called the marbled orb-weaver is a species of spider belonging to the family Araneidae.
Two main forms of this species are known. The nominate form has an orange abdomen with black or brown marbling while var. pyramidatus is much paler, sometimes almost white, with a single dark blotch towards the rear of the abdomen. The nominate form is found throughout the species' range while var. pyramidatus is found only in Europe, where the two varieties are seldom found together. The female has a body length (excluding legs) of up to 14 mm while the male is rather smaller at 9 mm.

Ciao Sergio,
Excellent sharpness, great natural colors, useful description!
Not very good, it is a problem shadows.
Have a nice weekend, Regards, Joska

Ciao Sergione,lo sfondo penalizza la foto,dovresti fare un piano di foglie nel tuo allevamento e metterci sopra i soggetti da fotografare,comunque la qualita' dei dettagli e' davvero eccellente,anche la specie non e' facile da incrociare.Buona serata,Luciano
