Eresus ilustris is a species of ladybird spider from the eastern Mediterranean. Their strikingly pink webs are built below rocks. One egg sac contains several hundred eggs, and spiderlings seem to disperse much more than other Eresus species (using ballooning), so that they are not found in large clusters.
