Zygiella x-notata – New Garden Species

Well, it’s a new year and it didn’t take long to confirm our latest new garden species, and we are so glad to see another species of spider.

Zygiella x-notata is a very common species and we have likely just overlooked it to date. Viewed up close it really is a fantastic looking animal, which we found tucked away earlier today within a bunch of hazel catkins.

This really was a tiny animal, but we were able to get some good close up photographs using a cheap macro iphone lens attachment.

Welcome to the garden…
