Holoplatys species

The colour scheme on this male is distinctive and rather unusual for a Holoplatys species. It appears to be somewhat similar to Holoplatys bicolor as described by Marek Zabka in 1991 but the specimen photographed here was found in South-east Queensland, which is far from the known range of H. bicolor.

Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Many other Holoplatys species.
