This spider usually is found on exposed surfaces but it probably also makes a retreat under loose bark
Unknown but this is a timid spider and its fangs may be too small to present a hazard to humans
The colour of this spider closely matches that of the bark of which the gum trees on which this species chooses to live. This means it is
rarely noticed and the fact that it has less tendency to jump or run quickly than many other salticids enhances this camouflage effect.
A noteworthy feature of the male is the presence of five black spines on the underside of Tibia I. All leg segments of both sexes also have a dark inner edge
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Arasia species.
