This driftwood beetle was stuck in a Steatoda capensis web. Nixed the Steatoda and let this one get away. I've not seen katipo munch on this species, but S. capensis definitely does.

Phil's trick of shaking the marram into a pan would have worked a treat here, rather than having them scatter across the sand.
