Pseudolampona warrandyte? |
(Identification from a Platnick paper as shown below)
female: 3.5 mm|
male: 3 mm
Lirrle is known about this spider's habitat but it may live under loose tree bark, under logs and stones or in leaf litter
Too small to be harmful?
The suggested species name for the spider shown on this page was derived from the Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History article
written by Norman Platnick in 2000. The large flattened posterior median eyes that are oval and lean towards each other
shows this spider is a probable lamponid and the presence of dark chevrons on the dorsal abdomen is common on Pseudolampona species but is not present
on any other members of the Family Lamponidae. There are several described Pseudolampona species in Australia but the maps in Platnick's paper indicate
that the spider shown above is Pseudolampona warrandyte. Unfortunately, neither Platnick nor any anyone else appears to have published photos or
drawings of this species so its appearance is not absolutely certain.
Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: A variety of other small spiders.
