Gets its name from it's preferred habitat among tall grasses. The Latin name 'oblongus' is derived from the elongated body shape.

The shape and colouring help to disguise it when hiding in long dry grass. Grass spiders assume a stretched out posture when resting.

The females implant their eggs into the caterpillars of butterflies and moths. When the eggs hatch the larvae feed on the body of the host caterpillars.
