Hi Karyn & welcome to the Community!I've moved this great spider to arthropods for you.
That is a really cool picture
Hi Karyn and welcome to Project Noah! This is an impressive spider and a great first spotting! I believe this is a male (the abdomen is small comparitively). Though it's hard to say for certain, I think this fellow looks quite similar to Lycosa musgravei. How big was the spider? It looks quite large.There isn't as much online for ID help as I had hoped but I did find these:http://ednieuw.home.xs4all.nl/australian...http://www.lycosidae.info/identification...This spotting should be moved to the "Arthropods" section. The "Other" section is for a variety of organisms including snails, slugs, starfish, clams, worms and such that don't fit in the other categories.Welcome again and I look forward to seeing more of your submissions!
