Copocrossa species (QM)|
(probably juvenile; lighter than the North Queensland species, Copocrossa tenuilineata
female: perhaps 4 mm|
male: about 3 mm
Usually wandering on green leaves or perhaps bark
Too small to be hazardous to humans
Distinguishing features of Copocrossa are its general shape and flattened cephalothorax but especially its first pair of legs on
which the innermost major segment (called the femur) is reasonably long but not very robust, the tibia is very stout and spiny, and the two outer leg segments are quite thin and short.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Arasia species.
