Drapetisca socialis · vikrusis karnavoris

It is distributed across most of the Palearctic region. This is a very small species with a body length (excluding legs) of just 3 mm. It is usually found motionless on its delicate web, built on the trunk of a tree, where its mottled body and banded legs, allied to its tiny size, make it very difficult to see (giving it the common name invisible spider). This species of spider weaves webs made of silk so fine that it seems invisible; it can only be seen if the light falls on it at the right angle. As a result of this 'invisible' web, it appears that the spider is resting on tree trunks - in reality, all 8 legs are resting on its web.
