Cellar spider

Pholcus phalangioides


Gravid female cellar spider, also known as the skull spider. If you look closely, you can even see the short, evenly-spaced hairs on her legs. The last photo shows her one day before, before her belly started to swell with developing eggs.


Flat in Berlin, Germany
