Leucauge subblanda (Tetragnathidae) [Japanese name : ko shirokane-gumo]
Although L.celebesiana weaves its web above streams generally, but L.subblanda
weaves its web on a tree and the grass of a woodland path without water.
Since the spider hangs down from a horizontal orb web, we see the face under
the body of the spider. It is a beautiful spider. The surface of spider has a
pattern of black stripes silver in color and its legs are green.
The length is 9-11 mm.
It is found throughout Japan.
