Description

Big Thicket National Preserve, Turkey Creek Unit. I apologize about the poor quality photos but my camera had trouble focusing on this small spider on this overcast morning. This spider had a bowl-shaped web and was positioned on the outside of the bottom of the bowl. It had also had a second web suspended below this web. Quite a unique web, but that's not the only unique aspect of this species. This species exhibits cohabitation between males and females (most spider species are solitary), with females allowing the males to stay at the female's nest for a time, behavioral thermoregulation, and a longer than 24 hour circadian rhythm.
