Garden Wolf Spider

Lycosa godeffroyi (male)


across the legs 7cm probably 2cm body. Very aggressive initially, calming as time went by. I am not spider expert and this identification is a best guess based on examples


This one has entered my lounge room searching for a mate and seems inclined to sit on the wall above my pillow. Every time he is approached he drops off onto the bed and the scurries out of sight. His vision is excellent and he was watching and reacting from the far side of the apartment


The name has been changed, the other name it is called by Tasmanicosa godefroyi
