The actual 300th species was the sheet-web building spider. Agelena labyrinthica. The spider is large and so too is its web. Even through a veil of web the chevron-like markings can be seen on the abdomen; also the rather prominent spinners at the tip of the abdomen.
Agelena labyrinthica is a top predator in the world of mini-beasts.
