The spinning apparatus of adult Clubiona phragmitis C. L. Koch of both sexes has been morphologically examined. C. phragmitis is poorer equiped with external spinning structures as compared to many web-spinning spiders (especially Agriopidae, Agelenidae), though better equiped as compared to Theridiidae. The spinning apparatus of the studied species is more efficient than that of nonspinners which closely connected with its mode of life. The male spinning apparatus, in spite of its being morphologically richer than in females, is functionally reduced. Only during the mating period its activity is comparable with that of the female apparatus.
