Deliochus zelivira Keyserling, 1887 Deliochus


Deliochus zelivira, probably the most common of the Deliochus spp., found throughout Australia, appears to have been moved to Tetragnathidae then back to Araneidae. The female can grow to 11 mm, the male 5 mm. They construct a retreat of eucalypt leaves. This male was wandering loose in the garden, hanging by a thread of silk.
