Furrow Spider

Larinioides cornutus

Description:

Larinioides cornutus, the furrow spider, is an orb-weaver spider. Females reach a body length of about 6–14 mm, males up to 5–9 mm. Leg spans range from 18–35 mm. The male lives with the female during mating time, which is in autumn, and again in spring. The female produces three to five yellow egg sacs during the summer.

Habitat:

These spiders are most often found in moist areas, especially near water. The web is built between grass or in low shrubbery. They hide during the day in a silken retreat that opens at the bottom, masked with plant and animal matter and leave it during the night. The web is remade in the evening.
