Comments & ID Thoughts

Micrathena gracilis, different specimen, same small cluster of trees and vines. This was the first one I saw. The white tips on the spines were visually very odd from all angles. It created an optical illusion that the spines were longer than they actually were. The females of this species were very crowded into this one spot, I only saw individuals in a couple of other locations.
