Funnel weavers make an unusual web. The spider hides in a funnel-shaped retreat, from where its web stretches further into a small ringed web or a large thick mat. Vibrations warn the spider of a possible prey. It then runs along the upper side of the web to catch what lands on it. After paralyzing it, the prey is dragged back to the retreat where it is further consumed. The cocoon of eggs is made in the funnel.
