Comments & ID Thoughts

Parasteatoda sp. Common House Soiders. female and courting male. On house foundation. I submitted a previous photo of this pair. The male (right side) attempted to mate for a very long time. The female kept charging toward him and he kept trying different moves and angles. He eventually spontaneously died without mating with her.
