  • two clutches during last instar; If eggs sac was removed, a new one was produced with less eggs. First instar stays first 5 d in egg sac (ref: MoreDelC2011)
  • The energy to make the eggs in the first sac comes from food eaten in earlier instars. The period that spiders are adults and the weather is dry with low prey availability (June to September). In the development phase the climate is more humid with greater prey availability (October to May). (ref: More2014)
