      it seems to be a female Ladybird Spider Eresus sp. but the photos aren't very clear...

      Thank you a lot Chli, it seems that it's Eresus moravicus, Eresus kollari or E. sandaliatus, found in Southeast Europe (?). Otherwise I had no idea, even to wich genus it belongs.
      This seems that it is female, with golden cephalotorax; males are with red abdomen and black cephalotorax.

      They are quite big spiders, and would make attractive choice as part of invertebrate collection in a zoo.
    There are no comments to display.
