Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Spider photo captured in south-east QLD, Australia, Wide-Bay area. Submitted it to my usual circle an they guessed it was some Celaenia species, with Celaenia excavata being the main guess. However, it's missing the distinctive double hump.

The 'lines' on the hump are shadows from indentations, not colouring. Spider was about 5mm across.

I found this one after searching for a bit – I have no idea if it is the right one – But it positions itself in a similar way to your spider Dolophones – The wrap around spider.
