Banded, Yellow, & Silver Garden Spiders Compared

Silver Argiope, Brownsville TX 102108Yellow Garden Spider, Tyler TXBanded Garden Spider, Justin TXThe image on the far right is of the silver garden spider, taken by Lutz S. in Brownsville on 102108; the middle image is of a yellow garden spider, taken by Maxine DM in Tyler, TX, on 071507; and the image on the right is of a banded garden spider taken by Stephen M. in Justin, TX, on 102107. As these images show, the three species are similar in many respects, but quite different in others. I titled this page "compared" but in reality the only comparison here is of the dorsal morphology and markings, while we must surely admit a spider is much more than that ----FINIS---- PAGE MENU:  1  *  2  *
