Darlingtonia spider:
This little critter is responsible for the webbing. I am having it identified by specialists at the California Academy of Sciences (I must collect a male for them), and they tell me it is in the Dictynidae. The genus is currently unclear--probably Dictyna, but possibly Emblyna or Mallos.
