Orb stretch spider Meta mengei or Metellina mengei

Line

This spider is very similar to Meta segmentata but is found in spring and early summer rather that late summer and autumn. Meta segmentata and Meta mengei belong to the family Tetragnathidae, genus Metidaeare and are the two most abundant spiders. They are about 4-8 mm long. They are easily recognized by the hole in the web and the broad band on their belly.
