Tylorida sp. Tetragnathidae

Orb-weaver spiders or araneids are members of the spider family Araneidae. They are the most common group of builders of spiral wheel-shaped webs often found in gardens, fields and forests. "Orb" was previously used in English to mean "circular",[2] hence the English name of the group. Araneids have eight similar eyes, hairy or spiny legs, and no stridulating organs.[1]

 

The family is cosmopolitan, including many well-known large or brightly colored garden spiders. With around 3,100 species in 169 genera worldwide, Araneidae is the third-largest family of spiders (behind Salticidae and Linyphiidae).[1] Araneid webs are constructed in a stereotyped fashion. A framework of nonsticky silk is built up before the spider adds a final spiral of silk covered in sticky droplets.

 

Orb-webs are also produced by members of other spider families. The large golden orb-weavers (Nephilidae) and the long-jawed orb weavers (Tetragnathidae) were formerly included in the Araneidae; they are closely related, being part of the superfamily Araneoidea. The cribellate or hackled orb-weavers (Uloboridae) belong to a different group of spiders. Their webs are strikingly similar, but use a different kind of sticky silk.

The cephalothorax is thin and flat with the cephalus raised. At the rear of the cephalus, there are two short horn-like projections. The abdomen is long, rounded, widest and truncated in the front, narrowing gradually to a rounded posterior. The abdomen covers pedicel and spinnerets. The legs are very long. The front legs are about twice as long as the spider, thin, brittle and swollen at the joints. There is a longitudinal row of short spines on the femora. Carapace is black and covered with very short silvery hairs. The abdomen is black with yellow longitudinal bands. The male is reddish brown in colour and hangs on the edge of the web and is very smaller than the female.

While setting up the BBQ for dinner I noticed this Silver Orb Spider fixing its web in the garden. I wonder what my wife was wondering as I raced inside, grabbed my camera and then lay in the garden bed photographing this small spider! As an aside, this spider is also known as the Horizontal Orb Spider as it spins its web horizontally rather than vertically.

 

Mentre stavo prepara il barbecue per la cena ho notato questo Argento Orb Spider stava riparando sua tela in giardino. Non so quello che mia moglie stava pensando come ho corso dentro per ottenere la mia macchina fotografica e poi mi stendo sul giardino fotografare questo piccolo ragno! È interessante notare che questo ragno è anche conosciuto come il o\Orizzontale Orb Spider come gira sua tela orizzontale piuttosto che in verticale.

Nunca habia visto esta especie de arañas antes, lugar de captura san Isidro, el viento que soplaba su red me impedia hacer una foto mejor.

UPDATE:(20140326) Mil gracias a Tony Tosto de dominicanspiders.blogspot.com por su ayuda para Identificar propiamente a esta especie. Tony es Italiano y a travez de su blog muestra su amor por la arañas y llega a llenar un espacio que talvez nadie mas se preocupaba por llenar. el educar y identificar las especies que coexisten con nosotros en esta media isla, una tarea invaluable, a el las gracias.

I've never seen this kind of spider before, place of capture "san Isidro", the wind blowing his net prevented me make a better picture.

Not sure on the species, I'm guessing it belongs to the Tetragnathidae (Long-jawed Orb Weavers), but happy to corrected.

 

The fangs look particularly big on this guy!

 

Happy Arachtober everyone!

Uma aranhas bem pequena (ainda bem), que possui lindas cores, o laranja do abdome chama muito a atenção. O "smile" dá um charme todo especial à essa espécie.

Common long-jawed orb weaver (Tetragnatha extensa) munching on a mosquito which I waved into her net.

 

The spider sat on the underside of the web across a small ditch so I held the camera underneath the web and shot upwards.

 

Photo taken in 2004 using a Sony DSC-P120.

 

Mässingssträckspindel (Tetragnatha extensa) mumsandes på en mygga jag svepte in i hennes nät.

 

Spindeln satt på undersidan av nätet över ett litet dike så jag sträckte in kameran under och fotade uppåt.

 

Fotot taget sommaren 2005 med en Sony DCS-P120.
