Small spider of the Orb Weaver group, feeds on insects that fall victim to the sticky webs that are spun intricately in both a messy form as security lines for the architectural 'circus tent' shape that forms the main web, a home for the spider when at rest. Also known as Dome-web Spiders.
Found in many areas of Australia, gardens and in known insect flight paths.
Note the intricate detail in the webs, all done by a tiny spider. Webs resemble the geometric design of nets.
