long period as subadult?
« am: 2009-12-26 01:35:10 »
I found a subadult Dictyna uncinata male in my christmas-tree. According to Almquist it's adult-period in Sweden (and Norway) should be May and June. So, I wonder if the spider eats just enough to survive through the winter - no growth - and that the next (last) moult will occur in the spring? Alternatively it has two adult-periods through the year. Or one might find adult species through all the year. Does anyone have answers or theories about this topic?
