Spider Beetle

Ptinus tectus


Originating from Tasmania, this species now has a wide distribution throughout temperate zones of the world. The beetles are 2.5 to 4 mm in length and have a thin ‘waist’, rounded abdomen and long legs, giving them a spider-like appearance. The thorax and wing cases are covered in velvety brown hairs.

There are several other widely distributed species of spider beetle, including the Golden Spider Beetle, the Globular Spider Beetle, and the White-Marked Spider Beetle.
