Agyneta vera? |
(This tentative name is used because of similarities with labelled internet images as explained below)
female: 3 mm|
male: 2.5 mm
May be found in a small web in moist leaf litter but sometimes enters buildings
Too small to be harmful
The main photo presented above is of a spider found in a Briabane house. It seems to match Wunderlich's 1976 description of
Agyneta vera, which is accepted by the World Spider Catalog as a linyphiid species recorded only for Queensland. There are almost
no published photos of it but one taken by Iain Macaulay seems to be this species.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Some very small theridiid species.
Email Ron Atkinson for more information.
