Battalus diadens |
(ID from a paper by R. Raven)
female: about 8 mm|
male: 8 mm
Fast moving; may be found in crevices,under logs or in leaf litter
Unknown; probably not dangerous but treat with caution
The identity of this spider is based on published images and also on the fact that B. diadens is shown in the Atlas of Living Australia
as being recorded for almost the exact location where the spiders shown on this page were actually found. In addition, the only other two
Battalus known to be present in NSW are Battalus adamparsonsi and Battalus wallum and both
of these are distinctly different in appearance.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some other corinnids and even some gnaphosids.
