|The body size of adult heather spiders varies. Females reach body lengths of 7 - 9. 8 mm, while males are 2 to 3. 6 mm in length. As is the case with most species of crab spiders, the heather spider has a bizarre body shape with bumps and pits. The colour of the body in the males and females is also different. In some specimens the whole body is one colour. The body colour of the females can range from white to pink or yellow, depending on the colour of the flowers they are visiting. This colour adaptation is possible within a few days, with the colouring is supported (surface dissolution) by dots and stripes. ...|
|Adults can reach body lengths of up to 8 mm; the females are usually 5-7 mm in length, the males, 5 mm. The body of the rabbit hutch spider, especially the males, is flat. The body colour varies from shades of red to brown. A distinctive characteristic is the oily sheen, which originates from their bodies and earns them their name with regards to the latin name.

... distinctive characteristic is the oily sheen, which originates from their bodies and earns them their name with regards to the latin name. While females are generally reddish brown in colour, the males are rather darker brown. The underside of the body is pale brown. The entire body and limbs are covered in fine light hair, the thickness of which can only really be seen under a microscope.

The shape of the rove beetle’s body is very untypical of beetles’ Its body is usually elongated, and the wing covers are shortened, so that the abdomen is unprotected. The advantage of this is that the beetles have greater mobility when entering smallest cavities. The wings are enfolded by the wing covers. The body length of the rove beetle, (depending on type), ranges from 0.5 to 50 mm and the body is usually black or brown in colour. Occasionally species with a metallic blue-violet or blue colour can be encountered. Other species are very hairy. Most rove beetles are good fliers, and often swarm on warm evenings. While larger species of ro...|
|Ladybirds (ladybugs, lady beetles)|
|Ladybirds (Coccinellidae) are a diverse family within the order Beetles.
The body of the ladybird is dome-shaped, shortened or oval. They are between 1 to 12 mm in length. The head, chest and underside are usually black however some have a light brown to red-brown underside. The coloring of the head depends on the rest of...|
...the ladybird is dome-shaped, shortened or oval. They are between 1 to 12 mm in length. The head, chest and underside are usually black however some have a light brown to red-brown underside. The coloring of the head depends on the rest of the body and is sometimes different to the coloring of the body. The body color ranges from light beige to yellow, orange, all the brown tones, pink, red to black. Young ladybirds are initially white or yellowish. The coloring serves as a warning to enemies. There are hairy species of ladybirds.
|Ichneumon wasps reach body lengths of 10-50 mm. The colouration of their bodies varies. . The basic colour is often black or reddish-brown. Many species have markings in red, white, yellow or brown. The antennae of most species have more than 16 segments. The presence an...|
...ost species have more than 16 segments. The presence and shape of the areole in the front wings is a major identifying characteristic. The females of many species have a long ovipositor. The abdomen is clearly separated from the front part of the body.
Ichneumon wasps are widespread in various habitats such as mixed forests, deciduous forests, coniferous forests, fields, wetlands, wood shots, clearings and forest deadfall.

Species which parasitise aphids can exploit up to 200 aphids in a week. The females lay their eggs on the surface of aphids. After one to two days, the larvae hatch and then eat the insides of the aphid out . They pupate in the hollowed out body of the aphid and after five days, the young adult wasps hatch. Some species specialize in spinning cocoons and live on their eggs.
Because the hatching wasps keep the populations of plant pests down, they are considered very useful. They ar...
|Gonocerus insidiator reach body lengths of 10 - 15 mm. Their body shape is similar to that of Pentatomidae species, but they are not so broad. The upper surface of the body is reddish brown and the underside is yellowish-green. The head has strong, long antennae with 4 segments and greenish eyes. The head and antennae are also reddish brown. The pronotum is broad and bears remarkably sharp spikes. The scutellum is smal...|
|The upper section of the body (prosoma) has dark edges and is a glassy, yellow to light brown colour. On the upper side is a black marking which resembles a "Y". The sternum is dark brown.
The rear section of the body (opisthosoma) is oblong. The basic colours of the upper side are white , yellow , green or reddish-brown. . At the upper section of the opisthosoma is the characteristic leaf-shaped marking (folium) , which varies in colour (often in highly-cont...|
...y hairy, ( on the ventral side).
Due to its appearance, the autumn spider can easily can confused with the small autumn spider (Metellina mengei), which is similar in colour. . The species can be told apart by the shape of their genitals, their body size and the hair on the legs of the males.
The autumn spider can be encountered in a wide range of environments, at various altitudes. It prefers semi-open habitats such as forest edges, clearings, box, trees, lawns, gardens, hedgerows, bogs ...
|Adults can reach body lengths of 3-5 mm. Their elongated, domed, dark bodies have a strong metallic sheen, which is bronze, copper, blue, dark green and (more rarely) black in colour. The metallic blue-green to blue or black forewings (elytra ) have clearly visible d...|
...nze, copper, blue, dark green and (more rarely) black in colour. The metallic blue-green to blue or black forewings (elytra ) have clearly visible dots, which run in multiple rows lengthwise. The head, scutellum and legs are a similar colour to the body but diffusely spotted have a scattering of dots. At the rear end of the body is a defensive gland, whose secretions determ both macrophages and enemies as also have disinfecting effects.
|Willow flea beetle|
|.... Scientific synonyms for Crepidodera aurata are Disonycha spp. and chalcoides aurata. The willow flea beetle is common in Europe and Asia. This species can be found in every kind of environment , and is not endangered.
Crepidodera aurata reach body lengths of 2.5-3.5 mm. Its elongated and oval shaped body has a metallic sheen. The entire upper surface area of the females is greenish-gold in colour; that of the males is greenish-blue, blue or purple. Longitudinal rows of dots are visible on the forewings (elytres). The brown legs to the ankle are ...|
...sh-blue, blue or purple. Longitudinal rows of dots are visible on the forewings (elytres). The brown legs to the ankle are much thicker in the upper section of the rear pair, with which the willow flea can jump very far (up to hundred times its own body length).
The life expectancy of the adult beetle is 8-9 months. They are usually found in the countryside, moist forests, forest edges, wet meadows, marshes, meadows and heathland are their preferred habitats. They can also be encountered in ...
|The oblong, shiny metallic body of the Tetragnatha montana is a bit darker among the males and reddish in colour, while the drawing is nearly like that of the females. The females reach body lengths of 6-10 mm, the males, 6-8 mm. The front section of the females’ body (prosoma) is either beige-brown, tan or brown in colour. The sternum is dark brown to black, and sometimes has a dark edge. There are small bright spots beside the hips (coxes).|
