Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

I took this picture at night on a wall and I've been trying to indentify the specie but could not find it. It is pretty small(around the size of a thumbnail).
Thank you !

Hi! This is Nuctenea sp., likely N. umbratica.


Bother?? By sharing your finds with us, you only make us happy 😀 .
Regarding the specimen that you have found, it’s precisely her flat addomen that make makes it easy to tell Nuctenea sp. from other orb weavers 🙂

Here is a good site dedicated to European spiders:


As an Italian, I can tell you that it covers nearly all the species that are common in my country. for the smaller abdomen.
It’s very user-friendly, I think you’ll like it 🙂
