Grass Spider, female

Agelenopsis sp.

Description:

Medium sized brown spider with prominent hind spinnerets. Brown with dark and light stripes running the length of the body. Horizontal web that spreads out like a sheet with a funnel at one end in which the spider hides. Picture three shows some of the web. The funnel is just under the lip of the counter on the right (old sink that is outside). Males of this species wander looking for mates.

Habitat:

Suburban backyard garden.

Notes:

She was very fast. I would blink and she would be back in her hole. Beautiful big female! She spent the season in the corner of the yard by the composter.
