Comments & ID Thoughts

Neoscona crucifera or N. Domiciliorum? How DO you tell them apart. ID group in Facebook says that there has been some confusion between the two.

Hi. 🙂 The abdominal design on N. domiciliorum has a brighter white in it and often redder femurs, the abdomen also often has a more elongated appearance. To me this is N. domiciliorum.
