Triangulate Cobweb Spider     Maltese name not known
Further Information:
Named after the distinctive triangle patterns on its abdomen, these spiders hunt a variety of small arthropods by ensaring them in their webs. Though Steatoda bites are said to be medically significant, they are certainly not life-threatening (unless the victim is allergic to its venom) and the spider is not aggressive.
