Find a spider by...
webs and egg sacs
female: about 5 mm|
male: about 3 mm
This spider may build a small, tight orb web late in the evening which it destroys next morning
Unknown, but this small non-aggressive spider is unlikely to cause serious human illness
The external appearance of this species seems to vary somewhat but a pair of strong projections on the front of the abdomen is normally present.
Additional confirmation of the identity of this spider comes from photos on the internet of spiders with a similar appearance and labelled Carepalxis
bilobata. It should also be noted that C. bilobata is a species known to be present in inland parts of South Queensland, which is where the specimen
shown on this page was found.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Other Carepalxis species and some other araneid genera.
