Hypsosinga sanguinea (C. L. Koch, 1844)

Occurrence: Hypsosinga sanguinea is common in steppes, dry and wet meadows, or even in the forests. It is less abundant species. We don´t find the spiders close to each other. Description: Its elongated abdomen is light russet and it has three 3 yellowish longitudinal stripes. Sternum is gray, so we can differentiate it from Hypsosinga pygmaea. Adult females can grow to about 4 mm. Period of occurrence: The adult spiders occur throughout the year. Web: Hypsosinga sanguinea builds its small less strong web low above the ground. The spider responds to a prey soon. During the day it sits on the central area. But in danger or in bad weather it goes outside the web. It doesn't make signal thread and nest. Food: Its food is small flying insects.
