    Charlotte spider:

    The barn spider (Araneus cavaticus) is a nocturnal, yellow and brown spider with contains particular markings of stripes on its legs and a marking on its underside that is typically a black background with two white marks inside the black. Another distinct characteristic of this spider is its habit to take down its web and rebuild another web every evening. Its "orb" web is the archetypical web that contains symmetrical spokes connected by a spiral inside. They hide (sleep) during the day and at night will sit in the middle of the web and wait for an insect to land on the web when hunting. They are commonly found in humid parts of North America in late summer and through autumn. This spider was made well-known in the book, Charlotte's Web.

    In the story 'Charlotte's web', Charlotte scientifically is a barn spider. (Araneus cavaticus)

    In the book, the spiders full name was given, Charlotte A.cavaticus.

    Although monikered as a writing spider, these are usually a different genus of orb weavers.

    A woman spider and since she doesn't have a man around I suspect a black widow

    in the animated movie she is referred to as a "common Grey Spider"...don't know if thats what she really is but from watching the movie with my daughter a million times..that is the only reference to her spider species which i have heard. Hope that helps!

    I have to agree with Slappy, she is probably some generic fictional disney creation, but she closely resembles some wolf spiders.

    I haven't paid attention but she was a black widow in the book and animated movie.

  • I thought she was a black widow but in the movie they said that she was a plain brown house spidar.

    Definitely and orb-weaver. Maybe just your typical house spider or garden spider.
