Deliochus pulcher


Will somebody pull this wetsuit off please?
About 12mm body length this spider is trying to shed an old skin with only the legs yet to be extricated. Pic 2 is correct orientation so gravity may be an imprtant factor.


On eucalyptus branches in a local nature reserve. Gilmour Park.


Colours might be temporary?
