This very cool orb weaver I came across. Its web was flat, parallel to the water’s surface. Fangs quite large in relation to the body. Jeju Island, South Korea.

  1. Yes! Tetragnathids (a different family of orb-weavers from the Araneidae) are known for building their webs near/over water like this. And those big fangs are why they are sometimes referred to as long-jawed orb-weavers. Don't they just look like little twigs?

  2. Awesome! I’ve seen my share of orb weavers, Korea’s chock-full of them, but this was new. What does their diet consist of? Water striders? Mosquitoes? Just wondering what they’d catch with their net spreader over the water like that.
