I came across this spider and thought it looked like it was made from ”mother of pearl”
This stunning Orb Weaver Spider was relatively easy for us to identify. We suspected the genus to be Argiope, and that name paired with Cyprus brought us to the Invertebrates from Cyprus website where it is identified as Argiope lobata. Orb Weavers are not considered dangerous.
