Parasteatoda

female P. tepidariorum

Parasteatoda is a genus of spiders in the Theridiidae (tangle web spider) family.

Description[edit]

Most species are mainly grayish brown to blackish brown, but some are bright orange.[1]

Distribution[edit]

This is mostly an Old World genus, with many species found in Asia and New Guinea, but reaching into Europe. A single species, P. tepidariorum is found in the New World, but P. tepidariorum australis can also be found in New Guinea, Myanmar and Pakistan.

Taxonomy[edit]

Many species in this genus were moved from Achaearanea during a major revision in 2008.[2]

Name[edit]

The genus name is combined from Ancient Greek para "beside, near" and the theridiid genus Steatoda. The Japanese name for this genus is O-himogumo zoku ("thread silk spider family").[1]

Species[edit]

female P. japonica
male P. japonica
female P. lunata
