I sighted a female spider this moring about 8am in Tai Lam Country park. The web was anchored to a tree brach about 1m from the undergrowth and of the same diameter. The spider was about 4 cm in length with a plumb coloured body and yellow stripes. It had 7 legs (one missing) banded black and yellow and about the span of my hand. I believe it was Nephila Maculata. She was feeding vigorously - it was probably breakfast! Are they common in Hong Kong?
