I was amazed to see a familiar spider in Colombia. i worked on this species for 2 years for my Masters in Israel, and now it seems that the spider is an invasive species found all over Colombia. Later at the III Latinoamerican Congress of Arachnology, I found out that Cyrtophora is also found in Cuba, Brazil and Florida. Therefore it must be here in Mexico. Somewhere. Bad news for Mecynogea
