This species creates a lovely orb-shaped (round) web close to the ground on a tree or grassland plant.
In addition, the spider uses the path, which relays the vibrations created by the struggling prey, to find the presence of the prey. The spider is quick to sprint to the web, locate the target, and bite the target.
On the abdomen of insects, the spider frequently bites. The central nerve cord of insects flows all along centerline there, ensuring that the poison will kill the prey fast.
