wasp spider egg sac (egg sac)

New Acquisitions


On 3 September 2021 RAMM’s Natural Sciences Curator spotted a female wasp spider in the long grass by the museum’s off site store. This was the first year the grass had been allowed to grow long. By the 9 September she had laid this egg sac. The following week she was gone. In May 2022, once certain the eggs had hatched, the sac was added to RAMM’s collection.

This object is not on display.
