Larinioides sericatus is a relatively large orb-weaver spider common in most of Europe and parts of North America and Asia.

Females reach body length of 10–14mm, males 8–9mm.[1] Their orb webs can have diameters of up to 70 cm.

They often hide during the day, and wait for prey in the center of their web at night. Males can be found mostly during summer, females are active until November in Central Europe.
