Greenish spider Tenerife => Araneus bufo
« am: 2019-03-10 21:47:24 »
I found this spider in Icod de los vinos (700m), Tenerife.
It has a body length of 10-12mm.
Date : 05-03-2019
I have problems to find information about the spiders of the Canary Islands.
Help needed to ID this species.



Best regards

Wunderlich (1992) mentioned larger Araneus bufo from Tenerife with up to 12 mm. After the drawings in the first description of Denis, I think this is the species. Nice record.

For Information on Canarian spiders in general, you can have a look in this book:
