Wrap-around Spider

Dolophones turrigera

Description:

Under 1cm.

Habitat:

Among the branches of eucalypts is where I find them

Notes:

This may be the only time this variation of this spider has been spotted. Ron Atkinson and I agreed to call it as that species (Turrigera) and he has it on his site as Turrigera with split turret pending other advice

Thank you Mark and ChunXingWong. It was a sighting made before I knew about Project Noah. This guy has never been photographed or described before so I was pretty chuffed with the shot
