Theridula angula Tikader

Theridula angula Tikader - I finally managed to find out the name of this species. The prominent black spots seen on the body can be confused as eyes because it has 2 of these spots symmetrically placed on its shoulders. It has another pair of these spots on the lower end of the abdomen. I can only assume that the spider uses these spots to confuse predators or prey (its so difficult to figure out where this thing is looking).

 

I could not find any significant material on this species online except this brief text on Wikipedia. Any of you know any other interesting facts about this species?
