Uncommon

LOCATION: Krimpen aan den IJssel, garden

OBSERVATION:
2024-VI-08


In the undergrowth beneath the Stigmus pendulus [1] colony in the garden hung a male corpse strung up by some cobweb threads.

I’ve collected the animal but this kind of victims have been sucked dry by the spider and therefore lack the solidity provided by dried up soft tissue inside the exoskeleton as a result of which they easily can disintegrate. This specimen broke into three pieces as well.
