Dear Sir – I have another bug for you. This photo was also taken in central Colombia, near the city of Cartago(Very warm climate, 1000 meters above sea level) It was roaming the dinner table, it is almost palm size. I hope you tell me what is that bug. Pohoto taken by Alberto Botero. Thanks,
Hi again Martin,
This is a female Golden Silk Spider in the genus Nephila. We have one species in the southern U.S., Nephila clavipes, but we suspect your specimen is a different species.
