Not all spiders form webs but essentially all spiders have silk glands and spinners. In fact, the Orb weavers and many expert web designers have an array of glands that can fire off different combinations of product to make varied web lines. (Oh yeah, now we are amazed.) Jumping Spiders don't make capture webs but do tie themselves down with a web line before they make their leaps of faith. In fact, if you watch one carefully, as it creeps up as close to its intended victim as possible, it keeps cutting and resetting the line anchor as it approaches the doomed one. I love that singular fact.

Many spiders can be placed in family groups by their web type. The above is likely an Orb Weaver. I didn't even see the spider. Most have safety lines to take them in and out of the web in a hurry. And some have a trigger wire that they rest near so they can feel the vibrations of a struggle. There is one spider that places itself in the trigger mechanism of the stretched web itself. And a group that has touchlines that go to the ground. The insects walk along and touch the lines and are pulled up into the air where they are easy pickings for the spider (Steatoda). The famous Spitting Spider (Scytodes) fires projectile lines in a quick array over the sitting prey. And then says "boo."

Most males do not make complex webs. They are all about breeding and surviving that sometimes horrendous experience. A few make rudimentary creations. Some hang out with the usually larger females even after sex. Though, as you might expect, they aren't much help. But they do get to eat.
