This lovely spider is living on my friend’s back porch, but we don’t know what it is. Austin, TX June 6. Builds a huge ~2+’×3+’ web.
This is a very well camouflaged Giant Lichen Orbweaver, Araneus bicentenarius, that according to BugGuide is found in: “Woodlands, on trees, among lichens.” As we will be away from the office later in the month, we are postdating your submission to go live during our absence.
