Thanks guys - I had thought of a jumping spider but thought it was too big!

Good call Stephen. It looks right allowing for a little minor pattern variation. Including those outstretched legs it would make 25mm with a 13mm body. That's a big jumper.

Sandalodes scopifer? http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spide... it is too big to be known version but that happens a lot in Australia or Sandalodes superbus http://www.findaspider.org.au/find/spide...

Ooo... probably big enough to hurt then. The search begins... :-)

the leaves are approx 5cm - so 2.5-3cm in length?

It's so impressive - even a rough guess ?? I suppose we can go from the leaf somewhat. I can't find it easily either yet.

Can't find anything like it on the web - found it on the leaf of a potted clematis in back yard - sorry didn't measure it!

Wow I haven't seen any of these around here. What is the size?
