Tharrhalea species? |
(this ID is based on an image published byRamon Mascord: see notes below)
female: about 6 mm|
male: about 4 mm
Probably on green leaves or flowers
May be too small to harm a human
The Tharrhalea albipes photo published by Mascord in 1980 looks very similar to the specimen shown on this page, especially if
the apparent differences in appearance are because this specimen
was not fully mature when photographed. This was the only Tharrhalea species known to be present in Australia until recently when the many Australian Diaea species
were revised. Most of the latter were then renamed Lehtinelagia species then a year or two later became Tharrhalea species.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Members of several other thomisid genera.
