The presence of a pair of very large eyes that face forwards and long, slender legs that at rest are aligned in pairs to form an X are features of this and other Deinopis species. It is not too difficult to find a specimen with the characteristic net attached to its legs. Alternatively, abandoned nets are sometimes found where deinopids are common.
