The Australian Elassoctenus species have not yet been exhaustively studied. In March 2017 only one Western Australian species,
Elassoctenus harpax (as shown in the book by ( Framenau et al), was listed by the World
Spider Catalog, but several undescribed species have been found in Eastern States, including the one shown on this page which is reasonably similar in
appearance to E. harpax.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some Argoctenus species.
