Candy-stripe Spider or Comb-footed Spider (Enoplognatha ovata)


The colouring of this spider is quite variable: some are in a pale creamy-green colour black spots on both sides of the abdomen, others have the two red stripes or just a single thick red stripe along the abdomen. Some individuals have red markings, some have no markings at all and are just pale green. Candy-stripe Spider's abdomen is about 6mm in size and can be found from May till October. It constructs a messy looking web consisting of a loose network of criss-cross threads.
