Filmy Dome Spider
The filmy dome spider is one of the most abundant woodland spiders in Missouri. Although the spider is tiny, the snare web, which looks like an upside-down silk bowl, is conspicuous throughout the year. The carapace of this spider is marked with a broad, dark brown middle band with white outer margins. The yellowish-white abdomen is wide and high at the back end, with distinctive mottled brown markings.
