Description: A medium-sized sac spider. Female from 5.5 – 8.7 millimetres, male from 4.4 to 7.4 millimetres. The cephalothorax is mid-brown, darker around the eyes. The chelicerae are very dark. The light brown abdomen has a dark central stripe tapering towards the back.
Habitat: Wet meadows and along streams, especially in long grasses.
Range: Across Canada.

Trivia: The female creates a nesting chamber by twice folding a blade of grass, holding it in place with silk. Within this she spins a silken cocoon for her eggs, and usually stays with them in the chamber until she dies.
