Bug-mimicking Swift Spider

Supunna picta


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

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:
