Yellow Garden Spider (Argiope aurantia)

Scaled collection of drawings of Yellow Garden Spider in various poses

Few spiders can build an orderly web like the Yellow Garden Spider (Argiope aurantia) of the family Araneidae. They are also called Corn Spider or Writing Spider, where males die after copulation and may sometimes be eaten by the female. Females bear the striking appearance of distinct yellow and black patterns on their abdomen. They may also have white cephalothorax. Look for it in open sunny fields and tall vegetation in North and Central America. Apart from creating distinct circular-shaped webs flooded with zigzags of silk, it also eats the web at night and rebuilds it in the morning or at daylight.

Male and female Yellow Garden Spiders vary in size. The female Yellow Garden Spider has an overall legspan length between 2”-2.91” (51-74 mm), body length of .75”-1.1” (19-28 mm), body width of .39”-.55” (10-14 mm), and body height of .22”-.32” (5.7-8.2 mm). The male Yellow Garden Spider has an overall legspan length between .55”-.94” (14-24 mm), body length of .2”-.35” (5-9 mm), body width of .1”-.18” (2.5-4.5 mm), and body height of .06”-.1” (1.5-2.6 mm). The common lifespan of the Yellow Garden Spider is between 1-2 years.

Arachnida is a class of invertebrates with jointed-legs, most have eight legs, but some have front legs that have converted to a sensory function or appendages that appear to be legs. The legs serve various purposes, such as feeding, defense, and perceiving the Arachnida’s surroundings.
