Find a spider by...
webs and egg sacs
female: about 5 mm|
male: about 3 mm
This species normally lives under loose bark or in leaf litter with minimal web production
Too small to be dangerous
Note: In the future at least some Australian Euryopis species may be renamed Emertonella species but as of November 2012 Platnick's World Spider Catalog states that
there are no Emertonella species in Australia and that the Emertonella genus has been removed from synonymy with Euryopis.
Euryopis species belong to the theridiid subfamily Hadrotarsinae and are considered to be specialized ant predators.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Euryopis species and Euryopis superba.
