  1. Most likely a tree orb weaver spider. Geo tagged. Help in identification would be appreciated! Posted 4 months ago
    1. This is some species of Argiope. Some of them are similar and here half of the abdomen is missing so it cannot be identified further. Posted 4 months ago
    2. Signature Spider

      1. Yes, it looks the same. The problem is that Argiope pulchella is very similar and I am not 100% sure which one is which. Posted 4 months ago

Argiope anasuja or Signature Spider is a species of Orb spider found in Asia ranging from Pakistan to the Maldives. Like other species of the same genus, it builds a web with a zig-zag stabilimentum. The mature female of ''A. anasuja'' always rests at the centre of the orb with her head facing downwards. The orb has an opening at the centre and when disturbed she goes through the hole and exits on the other side of the plane of the web.
