Phycosoma species |
(ID: H. Smith but see below)
female: 1.5 mm|
male: perhaps 1 mm
Little is known of the normal habitat of this species but it may spend at least some of its time in a very small tangled web under loose bark or in leaf litter
Much too small to be capable of causing a significant human envenomation
In February 2013 Platnick's World Spider Catalog contained no Australian Phycosoma species but it is presumed that there are a
number of still undescribed species in Australia.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: A variety of small spider species including Phycosoma species?.
