This spider shows a striking color polymorphism, which is genetically determined in a complex way. I have found the three colour forms in my garden. The abdomen can be plain pale yellow (variety lineata, top shot), yellow with two dorsolateral pink stripes (var. redimita):
or yellow with the dorsal surface of the abdomen entirely pink (var. ovata), the rarest in my garden:
In addition to the colour polymorphism the presence and number of black spots is also variable, as it can bee seen in the above photos. This species also occur on both coasts of the USA, presumably introduced from Europe. In the UK, there is a very similar species, also colour polymorphic, E. latimana, which has been recorded mostly in the south of England and it appears to be less common than E. ovata.
