Tetragnatha, the long-jawed orb-weavers, is a cosmopolitan genus of spiders with an elongate body form and often metallic-coloured abdomen. The chelicerae are often large and project forward horizontally. Members of the genus include the widespread T. extensa, found across much of the Holarctic region.
