Which one I haven't a clue as it composes some 26,000 species. But in summary, its an inchworm that will turn into a common moth. (edit - I think)
Jogeephus":2mfuvrwu said:I don't know that much about them really. But like spiders they can spin silk with their mandibles and can use it as a mode of transportation like a spider does. Never seen what you showed myself. Have seen the webs and the silt but never seen one crawling vertically. Probably cause they tend to hide during the day like many spiders do. Here is a good link about them. Near the bottom it shows a picture of one climbing.
