Sunday Bugs: Badumna Longinqua Spider

Sunday Bugs: Badumna Longinqua Spider


This is a Badumna longinqua, a type of cribellate spider.  Cribellate spiders produce a special kind of fine silk with a wooly texture whose tangled fibers ensnare prey without needing to be sticky.  This one built a web in my back yard between the garden hose hanger and the house.
