Silver Orb Spider (Leucauge granulate )

Very common spider but alwise nice to see.

Leucauge granulata is often labelled Leucauge dromedaria because of the second pair of humps on the abdomen. However, this name now appears to be doubtful because L. dromedaria is presently listed in Platnick's World Spider Catalog as a different (though perhaps very similar) species that also occurs in Australia.
Silver Orb spiders have the bright silver oval-shaped abdomens with black patterns. Their long legs and head are yellowish green to dark green in colour. They are common in Brisbane.. more
