Eriophora pustulosa This is by far the palest E. pustulosa I&#039;ve come across - and of note is the similarity to the wall upon which I found it resting. It was the first time I considered the variability of camouflage of these spiders. Up until this point, they have all been light brown to dark brown. <br />
