Plebs Joseph & Framenau, 2012  

Note. Plebs   can be separated from other araneid genera by the presence of white inverted U-shaped ventral pattern on abdomen and paired white spots antero-lateral to spinnerets. Plebs   can be separated from both Araneus Clerck, 1757   and most of the species of Eriophora Simon, 1864   by the following characters: males with stout ventral setae on coxae IV and pedipalp with single macroseta on patella. Plebs   and Eriophora   together can be distinguished from Araneus   by the following characters: presence of tegular protrusion and paramedian apophysis, median apophysis with basal arch, flat lamellar shaped terminal apophysis and scape without terminal pockets ( Joseph & Framenau 2012).
