Hi, I found this spider living on my brussel plants in july/August never seen one like this before, can you tell me what it is
We have identified your Cobweb Spider in the family Theridiidae as Enoplognatha ovata. You can find some nice matching images of this variably colored spider on Nick’s Spiders of Britain and Europe. You can view some of the color variations on BugGuide. According to Eurospiders, it is commonly called the Candystripe Spider.
Thanks for your help, this is a great service will reccomend to others
