Tetragnatha extensa, sometimes known as the Long Jawed Orb Spider is found on low-growing vegetation, usually in damp areas. It feeds on insects, including mosquitos, midges and moths, which it catches in its loosely-constructed web. When alarmed, it will sit along a plant stem, a blade of grass or the central vein of a leaf, with its four front legs pointing forwards, and its four back legs pointing backwards for camouflage. T. extensa is able to walk on the surface of water, where it can move faster than on land.
