Ornodolomedes species

Dr. Robert Raven (Queensland Museum) has advised that this specimen, which was found on a fence post in a near-bushland setting at Crows Nest (on the Darling Downs near Toowoomba) appears to be an undescribed species similar to several Ornodolomedes species that have been found in South Queensland coastal localities.

Spider(s) with a very similar appearance: Only other Ornodolomedes species.
