I think she’s Argiope Argentata, a Silver Garden Spider. Thank you for sharing her photo. We don’t have many from Ecuador, though there has to be more great spiders there!


Fantastic! I combine my travel with spider hunting. It’s a good way to see habitats and various species of living things that you might not have seen otherwise. It gets me out of the standard areas that people go. I’ve found things in people’s backyards that they didn’t know were there because they never looked closely. I would definitely want a spider guarding my mosquito netting too.
