Description

Tylorida ventralis is commonly known as big-bellied Tylorida. When being threatened, this spider has the ability to change its abdomen colour. In resting position, this spider stretches its first legs forward and close together. It has two rows of long, slender curved hairs on the femurs of the fourth leg. It builds delicate orb webs with open hubs and the webs are suspended horizontally or in an inclined plane. These spiders are slow runners and jump to the ground upon any disturbances. This species is widespread from India to Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.
