Behavior

It is a wandering hunter with good eyesight and camouflage, eating bark-dwelling insects and spiders. The male is smaller but otherwise similar in appearance. The eggs, diameter 1mm, are laid in a white round egg sac about 6mm across in a silken retreat. This spider was named by Koch in 1879. The word leuco means white and comis in Greek refers to a Count, a type of minor nobility.
