Green Huntsman

Neosparassus sp.

Description:

The colors in the images are accurate. 50mm approx across the legs

Habitat:

this example was discovered on garden lighting

Notes:

Prof. Atkinson believes this is an undescribed species. A second letter from Rob Whyte agrees with that and both men tell me that the arachnologist working on these was a David Hirst who was unable to continue with his work. It has yet to be picked up by another researcher. Rob Whyte can be found through http://www.arachne.org.au/ While Prof Atkinson can be found http://www.findaspider.org.au/

Well spotted Stephen.
I've certainly never described one of these.
There's a lot of work to be done in many groups.

I keep thinking there should be a band playing or something. This one is not previously described by science apparently....really, at least a drum!
