New reports of confirmed pandiculation by spiders

Four further araneoid species i.e. Argiope bruennichi, Cyrtophora ikomosanensis, Trichonephila clavata, and Nihonhimea japonica (Theridiidae) exhibiting pandiculation in or on their own webs suggest thatPandiculation is widely distributed at least among the superfamily Araneoidea, members of which generally construct aerial webs and wait in ambush for a long period.
