Species: herennia ornatissima (female)
Location: Gopeng, Perak
Description: A well camouflaged female Ornamental Tree-trunk Spider guarding her eggs. As with most arachnids, the female is much larger than the male. The mating behaviour of these spiders are quite peculiar. The genitalia of the male spider often breaks off inside the female after copulation, plugging it, thus preventing other males from mating with her.
