Comments & ID Thoughts

Garden Orb Weaver (Eriophora pustulosa) with Dewdrop (Argyrodes) spider on web. I have been filming this spider sporadically for several months (though it's generally shy during the day) and had previously seen both spiders in close proximity to each other. Several minutes of behaviour in this video. https://youtu.be/0AXA30oV0M0

Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 Both images filed. Sometimes Dewdrop spiders even prey on their much larger hosts, I hope your orb-weaver doesn’t have that problem.
