This photo was taken yesterday in the garden of the house of my daughter Ángels. In the rug of rubber of a table a "nest" was situated attached (the quarter(room) for the children, since we will read hereinafter(later on)). In the first photo we have opened the nest wherefrom there have appeared the spider mother and a cantiad difficult to calculate of "children" that corrian in all directions.
In the second photo, in WS, it is possible to see the partially torn(broken) nest and in his(her,your) interior even it(he,she) is the mom scratches. A spectacle difficult to describe that it(he,she) has made us amazed.

D. TENEBROSUS is a relatively big spider. The females measure of 15-26 mm of length and the males measure of 7-13 mm. Both sexes are of brown greyish color with black and light brown tones. Vida's record:

Hi Josep,
I love the little baby spiders.
A bit dark but a good POV that shows the size difference between the Mummy and kids.
Well done,
