Theridula species |
(ID based on similarities with overseas species and a photo shown by (Mascord) in 1980)
female: 1-2 mm|
male: 1 mm
This is a species that is most common in lush forest environments where it lives in a small web under green leaves
This species is much too small to harm a human
The identity of this tiny spider is uncertain in that the (World Spider Catalog) does not list any Theridula species as being present in
Australia. On the other hand, this spider has an appearance very similar to cosmopolitan species such as Theridula gonygaster.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: None.
