Funnel Weaver Spider (Family Agelenidae)

General: Funnel-Weaver Spiders (Family Agelenidae) are small spiders that weave horizontal webs on the ground that form expansive mats. The spiders are quick and hard to see, but they tend to have longitudinal stripes on the body.

If a prey item lands in the web, the spider will rush out, catch it, and hurry back to the safety of its nest.

Like all spiders, Funnel-Web Spiders have fangs and venom. However, they are generally harmless to humans because of their small size. One species, which is found in the Pacific Northwest, the Hobo Spider, is thought to be harmful.
