Web2spider Identification Guide. Web type: 26 - sheet web.

  • In northern Australia, Tent Web spiders may live in colonies on individual webs suspended on communal lines.
  • Southern species may be colonial when young, but adults are usually solitary.
  • The spider lives in a dense tangle of lines above the sheet, often with vegetation or a dead leaf forming a retreat.
