Trashline orb weaver

Cyclosa conica

Description:

Cyclosa conica is a small orb weaver, and it is easily recognized by the way it strings together the dead bodies of insects and other debris and hangs it near the center of its web. It hides on this string of debris, and its natural coloration makes it extremely difficult to see until it moves. One of its defenses against predators is to blend in with this debris and to feign death when disturbed. It was spotted near Volos city, Greece.
