Find a spider by...
webs and egg sacs
(Identification of this spider is as in notes below)
female: 25 mm|
male: 19 mm
This species lives in a burrow in the ground and is mainly found in arid Central Australia
Bites may cause mild illness but no testing of the venom of this species has been done
The suggested identity of this species was derived from a research paper by Langlands and Framenau and a photo of an
immature female specimen placed on the Flickriver website by Volker Framenau. Present evidence indicates
that it is best to state that the spider shown on this page is probably part of the Hoggicosa bicolor group but could perhaps be the 'undescribed grey wolf
spider' mentioned in the Langlands and Framenau paper.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some other Hoggicosa species.
