This study describes stabilimentum-building and other web characteristics in selected fed and unfed Argiope spiders – A. luzona, A. catenulata, A. appensa and A. aemula. Fed A. luzona, A. appensa, and A. aemula built longer stabilimenta. However, the stabilimentum length did not differ between fed and unfed A. catenulata. Unfed A. luzona, A. catenulata, A. appensa and A. aemula also built webs with larger web area and intake area. The web mesh height built by unfed spiders did not differ significantly with fed spiders in A. luzona, A. catenulata, and A. aemula. However, unfed A. appensa built webs with shorter mesh height. These results indicate that Argiope spiders do not alter size of stabilimenta in response to prey-intake alone, and factors other than prey intake are involved.
