Green-yellow Comb-footed Spider - Theridion sp.

Family Theridiidae

This page contains pictures and information about Green-yellow Spiders that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.
Leg to leg 20mm 
We saw this Green-yellow Comb-footed Spider once in Daisy Hills Sep 2008. We found two spiders together in a tangled web on a small plant. The two spiders had the same patterns on their abdomen, the large one is green and the smaller one is yellow in colours. As a general rule, we thought the smaller on was the male visiting a female in her web.

This is quite save to say that this pair of small comb-footed spiders are in genus Theridion.  At the moment quite a number of small spiders of different species which are not studied in details are put in this genus.
