St Andrew's Cross Spider - Male - Seven Legs Males are much smaller and with sombre colours, mostly dark brown, sometimes reddish, sometimes yellow. The shape of the cephalothorax is much the same as the female's, but the abdomen is smaller and roughly triangular. The habit of pairing the legs and the white "armbands" on the forelegs are shared by both the male and the female.
