The identity of the spider shown on this page is uncertain. Its general appearance is a reasonable match for that drawn by L. Koch in 1877
for Hogna senilis but there are now at least three other Hogna species listed in the World Spider Catalog as being present in Western Queensland, which is where the
spider shown on this page was found.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Many other lycosid species.
