A seldom-seen relative of the Sydney Funnel-Web Spider, it occurs in south eastern New South Wales and East Gippsland in Victoria. This female specimen was found a in a cool moist temperate rainforest gully near Mallacoota. It is unfortunately covered in mites, which will be a pain to rid it of!

I was very excited to find this, my first funnelweb!
