  1. Agelenidae

    The Agelenidae are a large family of spiders in the suborder Araneomorphae. Well-known examples include the common "grass spiders" of the genus Agelenopsis. Nearly all Agelenidae are harmless to humans, but the bite of the hobo spider (Eratigena agrestis) may be medically significant, and some evidence suggests it might cause necrotic lesions, but the matter remains subject to debate. The most widely accepted common name for members of the family is funnel weaver.


  1. agelenidae

    Agelenidae is a family of spiders commonly known as funnel weavers or grass spiders. They are characterized by their distinctive funnel-shaped webs, which they use to catch prey. These spiders are typically found in grassy or wooded areas and are known for their fast and agile movements.


  1. Agelenidae

    Agelenidae is a large family of araneomorph spiders commonly referred to as funnel weavers. This includes the common "grass spiders" of the genus Agelenopsis, as well as the "hobo spider", whose venom may or may not be dangerous to humans. Not to be confused with the family of dangerous Australian funnel web weavers, the Hexathelidae, which includes the infamous Sydney funnel-web spider. The family Agelenidae contains nearly 1,200 species in 68 genera worldwide. One included genus, Agelena, includes some fascinating semi-social spiders that live in complex communal webs in Africa. The best known of these is probably Agelena consociata. Sociality in these spiders has gone so far as communal web-building and sharing; cooperative prey capture and communal rearing of young. Spiders have not, however, taken the final step into the eusociality of the social Hymenoptera because there are no workers or soldiers and all females are reproductive. Usually, agelenids range from 4 to 20 mm in size, excluding leg span. Some of the largest species, for example Tegenaria duellica and Tegenaria atrica, may reach 2-4 inches in total leg span.
