Ordgarius is a genus of orb-weaver spiders first described by Eugen von Keyserling in 1886.[4] Adult females of the genus are bolas spiders, capturing their prey with one or more sticky drops at the end of a single line of silk rather than in a web. Males and juvenile females capture their prey directly with their legs.[5]

As of April 2019 it contains twelve species:[1]

Ordgarius acanthonotus (Simon, 1909) – Vietnam
Ordgarius bicolor Pocock, 1899 – Papua New Guinea (New Britain)
Ordgarius clypeatus Simon, 1897 – Indonesia (Ambon)
Ordgarius ephippiatus Thorell, 1898 – Myanmar
Ordgarius furcatus (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877) – Australia (New South Wales)
Ordgarius f. distinctus (Rainbow, 1900) – Australia (New South Wales)
Ordgarius hexaspinus Saha & Raychaudhuri, 2004 – India
Ordgarius hobsoni (O. Pickard-Cambridge, 1877) – India, Sri Lanka, China, Japan
Ordgarius magnificus (Rainbow, 1897) – Australia (Queensland, New South Wales)
Ordgarius monstrosus Keyserling, 1886 – Australia (Queensland)
Ordgarius pustulosus Thorell, 1897 – Indonesia (Java)
Ordgarius sexspinosus (Thorell, 1894) – India to Japan, Indonesia
