What is this spider?

by Andre
(South Africa)


We live in South Africa and this spider has been in the garden for almost 6 months. Do you know what it is, and if it is venomous?

Hi Andre, sorry, I can't identify the spider from such a distant picture - however, be prepared to have a lot more of them, because it looks as though you are getting a hatch of spiderlings.

I'm sorry I'm not familiar with South African spiders - my field of expertise is more local to British Columbia in Canada.

This gallery of spider images might be useful to identify your visitor.

Hope that helps,
