|Spider Photographs by family|
The members of this family produce orb-webs (circular with a spiral) with closed hubs and a strong signal line from the hub to the retreat is usually present.
Most spiders in this family make orb-webs with a small hole in the hub, although adult Pachygnatha abandon web building and hunt at ground level.
These are commonly called comb-footed spiders and build an irregular three-dimensional web in corners.
There are 43 genera and 75 species in this family. These spiders have large forward-facing eyes and are commonly called jumping spiders.
