Came across this spider while trekking in the jungles of Tungareshwar at Vasai East. White bulbous sack at its posterior end. Black eyes. Furry body. Size around 2-3 cms.


Was clicked on the forest floor in the rainy season


Did not jump or move reflexly away from the camera lens when shot in macro mode. Lens to spider distance must be around 5 cm or so.

@ Gopal Murali: I saw the link u sent. The size is different. (Plz note the confusion may hv arised, as I updated the size of the spider after reading in your link). & there is no white bulb at its posterior end.
ID still pending, I suppose.
