Conical Trashline Orbweaver Cyclosa conica  
Kingdom Animalia   >   Phylum Arthropoda   >   Class Arachnida   >   Order Araneae   >   Family Araneidae   >   Genus Cyclosa   

Description:

This species' webs can often be recognized because the spider will collect the remains of past meals and unite them in a long vertical hanging mass within the web--the trashline. The spider itself is often more difficult to find. Check the trashline itself and the spider may well be there. (R. Orr, pers. comm.)

There are 10 records in the project database.
