Entry from British & World English dictionary
A very small shiny black spider which is supposed to bring financial luck.
- Family Linyphiidae
- It's only about half a centimetre long, so it's the scorpion equivalent of a money spider, and as such may not be at the very top of the ‘most deadly’ list.
- When we were in the stalls I saw this money spider coming down my horse's neck.
- I used to be scared of pretty much all spiders (with the exceptions of money spiders, and those odd little red things about the size of a speck of dust).
