Sliver Lobed Spider - Cyclosa sp.


This page contains pictures and information about Silver Lobed Spiders that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.

Body length 8mm 
The spider looks similar to another Cyclosa sp. but we believe they are different species. This spider also has the silver lobed abdomen but the patterns on thorax are different. .
