Leaf Curling Spider (Phonognatha graeffei)

About a month ago, it seemed there were Jewell Spiders everywhere, but this week the Leaf Curling Spiders have taken over.  As the name suggests, each spider uses a curled leaf suspended in the centre of the web as a protected  hiding spot.   352 more words
