A tiny translucent creature, found in evil forests.

Phantom spiders are vermin that occur in evil forest biomes. Closely related to cave spiders, they produce webs that can be collected and woven into thread at a loom, and bite creatures to inject a venom which causes numbness and dizziness for approximately one month. An animal dissector can use a caught phantom spider to make venom. Note that stripping an area of available trees reduces the amount of webbing present, due to dwarves trampling it.

True to the creature's description, the sprite of the spider is partially transparent.

Some dwarves like phantom spiders for their translucence and their creepiness.

Ghostly spider. Not-so-ghostly venom.
