Bowl and Doily Spider Web
Frontinella pyramitela
Spiders build a fascinating variety of webs. This kind is called a "Cup and Saucer" (or Bowl and Doily) web, built by the Bowl and Doily Spider. These are often found in weeds about 2 - 3 feet above the ground. The spider stays just beneath the top web, the "bowl." Small insects get caught in the upper web and get eaten. I found this one in a field on a foggy June morning during the Science Camp where I teach.
