Spiderling of the garden cross spider. Approx 2mm and yellow with a dark patch
No interactions present.
I have watched a zygelia z notata over winter nurse an egg cluster and they emerged looking like these, but strikingly like araneus marmoreus var which I have a picture of a grown example, round body bright yellow with the black pattern on its rear upper abdomen.
can it be that all newly hatched spiders look like this?
I am a non expert but they are clearly nothing like an araneus diademata.
can an expert comment?
