U.S. Black Widow Spider, poisonous and dangerous. (also upside-down) << This spider actually seems to be a Red Back spider with the markings on it's back. They're easily confused with Black Widows due to the extremely similar coloring. ~Riley Arachnid


Australian stained-glass mirror spider. This species makes a small tangled web in green vegetation and appears to have behavioural patterns similar to redback and grey house spiders, but it is mainly found in eucalyptus forests rather than on the outside of houses and other man-made constructions. Very little else is know about this species, but It is speculated that the silver patches vary in size with the spiders mood.
