Find-a-spider by web, burrow or egg sac

Click on the most appropriate alternative on the list below if you think you have found a spider's web, burrow, or egg sac but no spider. But before you do, please note that

1. closely related species will often have a web, burrow, retreat or egg sac similar to those shown.

2. many spiders do not make obvious webs and their egg sacs are rarely seen.

3. most webs you find will be at least slightly damaged or atypical for some reason.

4. what you have found may not have been made by a spider but by some other kind of animal.
