A pale 7 mm long spider with a trapezoid body. The dorsal surface of the abdomen had a broad brown arrow-head pattern which continued anteriorly as a broad marking along the midline of the cephalothorax. On closer inspection, the spider was seen holding on to its prey, a newly ecloded hopper that can be seen in Pic 1 as a pale insect under the spider's fore legs. Pics 3 & 5 show the hopper's shed skin (exuvia).
Spotted on native shrub seen in sports field.

This spider was very difficult to photograph as he tried his best to hide himself and his dinner ! so, photos are of a poor quality. I have not seen one of these before so it was an exciting find.
