Namea flavomaculata (QM)|
(or a closely related species)
female: about 20 mm|
male: about 16 mm
In a sloping burrow, perhaps with an internal door, usually in rainforest locations
Unknown but bites by the male (at least) of this large species may cause serious illness in humans so treat with caution
This species is not often found by members of the public in South-east Queensland because it prefers rainforest locations which tend to be within the National
Park boundaries of the Queensland-New South Wales border ranges. The lighter patches on the legs of this species appear to be distinctive but are most obvious on
immature females and tend to darken as the spiders reach adulthood.
Known Range: This spider is mainly found in the border ranges of South Queensland and Northern NSW.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: None.
