This species, which varies in appearance, was previously listed as Tobesoa theridioides: see notes below)
female: about 4 mm|
male: about 2 mm
Little is known of the normal habitat of this species but it seems likely to spend at least some of its time in a small tangled
web constructed among dry twigs or in green vegetation. It is very common in South Queensland, building its web in branching dead twigs
Probably too small to cause a significant human envenomation but handle with caution
The suggestion that the species shown on this page was once listed as Tobesoa theridioides is is shown in the World Spider Catalog, where Tobesoa theridioides is presently listed
as a previous name for Theridion theridioides.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: None.
