Missing Sector Orb Web Spiders - Zygiella sp.

    Family - Araneidae
    Genus - Zygiella
    Five Northern European species.
    These Spiders make an Orb Web and leave a small section missing,
    with a single strain of silk, acting as the signal line that leads up to the retreat.
    Zygiella atrica drops straight down from its web if disturbed.
