''Argiope keyserlingi'' is a common species of orb-web spider found on the east coast of Australia, from central New South Wales to southern Queensland. It is very similar in appearance to the closely related north Queensland species, ''Argiope aetherea''. ''A. keyserlingi'' is commonly found in large populations in suburban parks and gardens, particularly amongst the leaves of ''Lomandra longifolia''. Like many species of orb-web spider, ''A. keyserlingi'' shows considerable sexual size dimorphism,.. more
