I was really surprised when I found some Trashline Orb Weavers in the Jordanelle Dam wetlands of
Wasatch County Utah.  I've now found them at Red Butte Garden, Pineview Reservoir, Zion NP, and
Jordanelle.  I need to go more places and look for them.  Carol Davis 5-20-2012

This is a better view of just how trashy their web lines are. I think a lot
of the prey in this line are sawflies.  Carol Davis 5-20-2012
