  This Genus of spiders have bright silver oval-shaped abdomens with black patterns. Theirs long legs and heads are yellowish green to dark green in colour. They are common in bushes and moisture area..
  These Spiders build inclined or horizontal orb webs, but sometimes vertical webs can be seen. They build typical orb webs. Their webs are simple and complete, with large holes in the centre.
  Haing long legs, they can build their web with wide space between radii, i.e., less radii are needed. Also the silks used are thin so their webs look weak. They wait for their prey in the middle of the web both day and night.

They like to build webs near fresh water, such as creek or pond.


The Genus Leucauge have two rows of long, slender curved hairs on the femurs of the fourth leg.
