Ant spider

Storena sp.

Description:

About 10mm long.

Habitat:

On a stone wall in a local nature reserve. Wicks.

Notes:

Yet to confirm species... Zodariidae... Storena maculata is a strong possibility http://ednieuw.home.xs4all.nl/australian...
The banding on the legs might be variable. This one was seen in the same location a year earlier http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/933...

Thanks Atul. I had forgotten about this one.

Mark .... this seems to be a spider from the Family Zodariidae...
Possibly a Storena sp.

Ha! Yeah just a joke common name until I know better. Haven't got back to searching for this one. Should be fairly easy with such distinctive banding? :)

Are you just tricking with the name? Glad he's just a little guy. If it was big, I guarantee I would be jumping twice as far!!
