Net Casting Spider https://australian.museum/learn/animals/spiders/net-casting-spiders/
Interesting! Note: the white on it is not markings, may be paint. Check out the fleshy bases to the eyes. They have great eyesight. These have also been called Ogre-faced Spiders.


You’re quite welcome! Honestly, I used Google Lens as a starting point for identifying it. With Spiders, the third guess by Lens is usually the closest. It helps with spiders I’ve never had the opportunity to identify before, then I can use the hints in an educated way. The “Ogre face” on your spider is fantastic!
