The Marbled orb-weaver, Araneus marmoreus (Araneae - Araneidae) is a species of spider with oval-shaped abdomen that sets them apart from other orb-weaver spiders.
This species exhibits significant sexual dimorphism; females are much larger, they are 9.0 to 18.0 mm long, while males are 5.9 to 8.4 mm long. Marbled orb-weavers are polymorphic and show a wide variety of colors and patterns, although all have light brown or orange carapaces and legs, while the ends of their legs are striped in white, clear, or black.
Marbled orb-weavers are widespread across the Nearctic and Palearctic regions.
