Sunday Bugs: Sheetweb Spider

Sunday Bugs: Sheetweb Spider

This spider is a Neriene digna, found in the Western U.S., Canada and Alaska.  It belongs to a family called Sheetweb Spiders (Linyphiinae), whose webs can be flat, domed, or bowl-shaped.   I have seen domed webs in my yard, with the spider hanging upside-down inside the high point of the dome.

This little guy has been hanging out under the lid of my yard trimmings bin, and it's probably trying to over-winter there in a protected place.  There is no web nearby.
