Uloborus plumipes is an Old World cribellate spider in the family Uloboridae. Common names are Feather-legged lace weaver and Garden center spider, due to its frequent occurrence in garden centers around the world.
Females grow up to 6mm. A stabilimentum is sometimes present. Pattern and coloration is quite variable. In contrast to U. walckenaerius, it has distinct tufts of hairs on the front legs. They hang upside down in their horizontal webs. Young spiders look like dead insects and are thus hard to find in a web.
The empty egg sac can often be seen attached to house plants. It is flattish, papery and brown and about 0.5 cm long, with the shape of a dried holly leaf.
The species name is derived from Latin pluma "feather" and pes "foot".
