The largest species of the genus. Carapace reddish-brown with golden hairs, and dark markings. Abdomen golden reddish-brown somewhat shiny. Similar to
which overlap in habitat but is smaller. The eggsacks are very characteristic and look like small inverted wineglasses placed in the vegetation, and are encountered more frequently than the spider itself. The eggsacks may be snowy-white or camouflaged with earth, thereby much less conspiceous.
Female 7-8 mm; male 6-7 mm.
Characters of genus:
The carapace usually with clear markings in the shape of characteristic angular loops radiating from the fovea. The abdomen with vague v- or w-shaped pattern or dark oblique spots or bars arranged in rows. The posterior row of eyes markedly procurved. Metatarsus I and II with three pairs of ventral spines. The Danish species can be identified in the field by their bodycolour and size.
Simon, 1897 (Spiny-legged Sac Spiders).
