Funnel web spider

Agelenidae

Notes:

The body of a funnelweb spider is typically long and roughly oval in shape. The legs are long, slender, and bristly, and the eyes are small and occur in two horizontal rows of four. A pair of spinnerets, used to make the spider's web, protrudes from the tip of the abdomen. The backs of many funnelweb spiders are distinctively striped or patterned in browns or grays. The cellar spider, a familiar funnelweb spider, is common in houses in many temperate and tropical areas. In Europe and America during the 17th and 18th centuries, the cobwebs from this spider were frequently used as a bandage to stop bleeding.
