Find a spider by...
webs and egg sacs
(this identification is as suggested by Dr Robert Raven)
female: about 3 mm|
male: about 2.5 mm
This species lives on/under bark or in leaf litter rather than in a web
May be too small to harm a human
Note: Dr Greg Anderson has stated that at least some Australian Euryopis species may soon be listed as Emertonella species.
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.
