Neat Looking Red and White Bug
March 22, 2010
I found this bug on the side of my car a few years ago around September. It was about the size of a dime, maybe a little bigger but not by much. I live in a rural area in eastern Virginia and have seen many bugs but never one like this. No one else I talked to could identify it either. I was so excited when I discovered your website and am hoping that you’ll be able to solve this mystery. Thanks for your help!

Arrowhead Spider

Hi Grace,
We haven’t posted a photo of an Arrowhead Spider, Verrucosa arenata, in years.  You may see additional images on BugGuide.  The Arrowhead Spider is one of the Orbweavers, and it is not dangerous.
