(Greek, embio = lively)
Common Names: web-spinners, foot-spinners
Distribution: Tropics and warm temperate regions

Webspinners are so called because of the first segment of the front tarsus is swollen and contains silk glands. The silk is spun out into galleries in which family groups of adults and nymphs live. Webspinners are mostly tropical, but a few species occur in the southern United States.
