(as shown on Robert Whyte's Arachne.org.au website)
female: about 22 mm|
male: about 15 mm
Normally under loose bark
Uncertain; probably harmless
The genus Isopedella was comprehensively described by David Hirst in 1990-1993 and the overall appearance, including the leg banding,
of the spider shown above, which was found near Melbourne, match the description of Isopedella victorialis, a common huntsman in Victoria.
The dark V at the rear of the dorsal abdomen is considered to be an essential characteristic of an Isopedella species.
Known range: Seems to be an exclusively Victorian species.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Other Isopeda and Isopedella species as well as Pediana regina.
