Notes

Web2spider Identification Guide. Web type: W25 - sheet web.

  • Comb-footed platform spiders are probably related to W30 (common house spider) and W32 (cobweb or neon spider).
  • These spiders occupy their webs by day, usually resting above the sheet unless the sheet itself is lifted up in which case it may live underneath.
  • The spider often shelters in a retreat made of dead leaf or other debris.
  • They usually move around upside down, hanging from their lines.
