Missulena occatoria: Rubrum

Rubrum1

Rubrum&Friends
Rubrum is at the bottom of the stack of spiders.

Rubrum references a male Red-headed Mouse Spider, found in mainland Australia. They mainly prey on insects but also on frogs and lizards. During mating season, males wander around during the day in search of a willing female. On finding her, the male taps the ground at her burrow, hoping for a warm reception.

Rubrum will be on display and for sale at the Oliver Center for the Arts July 28 – September 8, 2017 as part of a group exhibition, “Bugs, Birds and Beasts.”

Cold assembly: vintage brass and crystal knob, recycled vintage jewelry, wire, wool.

$95
