Leucauge subblanda (Tetragnathidae) [Japanese name : ko shirokane-gumo]

IllustAlthough 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.
