Wow, what a great spider! Did you base the ID partly on range? I’m curious because I see S. barnardi (Botswana) has a similar pattern with a center spot, and I see an extra spot on yours. Does the spot on the anterior of the abdomen extend to the end of the abdomen as in S. fasciata or does it stop short? It looks like S. fasciata is much more common.

Hi, sorry for the delayed reply. I have a lot going on at the moment and won’t be able to keep up with IDs for a few weeks. The reference I used was ”Dippenaar-Schoeman, A.S. (1991)”. It’s just a line drawing. https://wsc.nmbe.ch/reference/7022
