The Australian Golden Orb Weaver Spider (Trichonephila edulis) has a wide range, especially where there is plentiful of prey. With their large webs often strung within and between shrubs and trees, they are hard to miss. In the boom years, they seem to be everywhere, and other times, are hard to find.
Also known just Golden Orb or Golden Orbweaver, they have been sighted at the Alice Springs Sewage Ponds.
Pictured here is the egg sac of the Golden Orb Weaver.
