Water spider



  • An aquatic European spider (Argyoneta aquatica) which
    constructs its web beneath the surface of the water on water plants. It
    lives in a bell-shaped structure of silk, open beneath like a diving
    bell, and filled with air which the spider carries down in the form of
    small bubbles attached one at a time to the spinnerets and hind feet.
    Called also diving spider.
