Abstract: H. paradoxus - well known for its characteristic triangular web - has frequently been described to always completely collapse its web when catching prey. The aim of the present article is to show that this is not the case, and to discuss how the myth of the obligate complete collapse of the web has arisen and why it survived so well.
