This spider has a limited known range that extends outwards from Sydney for only a couple of hundred kilometres.
Distinctive characters of this spider are its overall shape and markings, its eye arrangements and the rows of parallel spines on the undersides
of the first two pairs of legs.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Unfortunately, Leptoctenus species (Family Ctenidae), many of the Cycloctenidae, and even some Miturgidae
and Zoropsidae species have the parallel leg spines and some other similarities with Toxopsoides species.
