We have caught our mature male T. blondi in the act of making a sperm web once before, but this time he was nice enough to let us take a picture!! I love the way his palpal bulb is glistening for the picture!! I thought this would be useful to those who have never seen a male with a sperm web. I just wish we had been able to get a shot of him when he was underneath the web adding the sperm. In this shot he is carefully wiping the sperm from the web onto his pedipalps.
