(or a closely related species)
(Dr M. Harvey)
female: 6 mm|
male: 5 mm
Most nicodamids are found on or close to the ground with little webbing present
This spider is probably harmless but the toxicity of its venom is uncertain so handle with caution
The mostly red colour of the cephalothorax and legs and the brown to blue-black
abdomen of the members of this family are distinctive.
A noteworthy characteristic of this species is the two-tone colouring of the upper abdomen, which is not seen on most other nicodamid genera.
Known Range: Found in bushland from Bundaberg down to about Wollongong, NSW.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Nicodamid species.
