  Pale Orb Weaver

A female Pale Orb Weaver, spotted near near My Son (fig.), in central Vietnam. The females are larger than males, growing up to around 0.6 to 0.9 centimeters, and are generally more colourful.

 

The Pale Orb Weaver is mostly green with a globular abdomen, of which the back is covered with a pattern of pale (whitish) and darker (yellowish to brown or black) markings, that resemble the face of a man with a thick moustache.
