Sondra aurea (QM)|
(see notes below)
female: about 4 mm|
male: 3.5 mm
This small salticid is most often found in leaf litter but may sometimes hide under loose bark of trees
This species may be too small to present a significant hazard to humans but may cause local inflammation and pain
While the spider images shown on this page closely resemble the drawings shown by Davies and Zabka for Sondra nepenthicola only six
teeth can be seen on the inside edge of each chelicera whereas the Zavies/Zabka illustrations show eight teeth there. This may indicate that at least some of the
specimens presented on this page are Sondra aurea rather than S. nepenthicola itself.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Several salticid genera with bodies that lack distinctive anatomical specialisations.
