Garden centre spider Uloborus plumipes, copyright Olaf Leillinger.

Belongs within: Neocribellatae.

The Deinopoidea are the cribellate orb-weaving spiders, including the net-casting spiders of the Deinopidae and the triangle-web spiders of the Uloboridae. Members of the Deinopidae have the posterior median eyes greatly enlarged and remarkably long and slender fore legs; they construct a small, expandable web that they hold between the fore legs and cast over prey (Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman 2007).

Synapomorphies (from Jocqué & Dippenaar-Schoeman 2007): Tapeta absent; abdominal tubercles present; deinopoid tarsal comb present; numerous cylindrical gland spigots on posterior median and lateral spinnerets; resting position on web with anterior legs extended.
