Fishing Spider
Family: Pisauridae 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.
