Cellar Spider

Pholcus phalangioides


This Spider, was about one eighth of an inch long. It had 8 long, jointed legs. It had simple eyes, and fangs for mouthparts. It built it's web near the corner of a large table. It's web, was a messy web, going in lots of directions.


I found this small Spider, inside my house.


March 4, 2,015, at 1:00 p.m. in the afternoon. I was walking around the inside of my house, looking for insects with my flashlight. In the corner of a table, I found this small, black Spider, resting on it's web, waiting for prey. It had a medium size web, going in lot's of directions. It had a very messy web. If you get to close to this Spider, it will start shaking it's web. This happened to me....
