Description:

A web of unknown species --perhaps spider mites-- forming a closely wrapped film around a stump.

Habitat:

This web was constructed on the stump of a mango tree (Mangifera sp.) some months after it was shattered by another falling tree, in a large semi-urban yard & garden next to a disturbed patch of remnant lowland forest. This is in the equatorial tropics of northern New Guinea,
