Supunna picta

Black abdomen with blotchy white spots. Black legs with white spots, front legs golden yellow.

Tropical North Queensland

Notes:

Photographed at Atherton Gold Produce just outside Tolga on the Atherton Tableland. I was pruning Dragon Fruit (Pitaya) Cacti when I saw this spider. I recall it was no bigger than about 1.5cm. I think I have managed to ID this spider: http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spide...
