Neoscona adianta Walckenaer, 1802
Common names: Heidewielwebspin [Nl], Heideradspinne [De]

Güzelçamlı, AYDIN ● Turkey

Description: The brown to red abdomen marked with a series of black-bordered white or cream triangles. The female has a body length (excluding legs) of around 7 mm, the male being rather smaller.

Biology: The web is usually constructed on low vegetation, among flower heads.
The hub of the web contains much white silk giving it an unfinished appearance. The retreat is a platform of silk on which the spider awaits its prey. Both sexes are adult from mid- to late summer, females through to the autumn.

Habitat: Open habitats including heathland, coastal grasslands, saltmarsh and fen.

Distribution: Palaearctic.
