Habitat: Moist Deciduous forests, this spider was
found outside my neighbour's doorstep during
monsoon on College campus.
These are commonly called fishing spiders because
of their habit of catching small fish. The spider
is very beautiful in appearance and can be easily
distinguished by the presence of black, glossy,
broad median band bordered by white lateral band
on cephalothorax and abdomen. The legs are long
and yellowish brown. It is found near water
usually near small rivulets in forest.
