Further Information:
"This species can be easily confused with Zygiella species (for example Z. x-notata) since it has in general the same colours and shape. However the Zygiella have a ""humped"" shoulders at the opisthosoma and a more rounded abdomen. Identification of such spiders from a mere photo is difficult, but this species is likely to be Agalenatea redii.(Thanks to D. Dandria for the additional information)"
