Picture of unidentified spider

Comments & ID Thoughts

Posted yesterday on Arachnoboards, only comment said it look likes a fishing species. I have seen over 10 individuals over the course of about 8 months at the trail nearby my house, they're very quick, not aggressive and I have seen them with eggs sacs all through out the year. The only spiders I see nearby are redbacks, communal huntsmen, false widows wolves (I think) and very rarely garden orbs. The area I've seen them is next to the coast but they've all been found in the bush away from water under rocks with the exception of one I found wondering across a path. I currently have 2 individuals in a container with about 5 roaches and an egg sac of the spider I want to identify.

I wonder if it could be a prowling spider in the family Miturgiae…some of them build sac like webs under rocks etc I think to hide out during the day. Not sure if they carry their egg sacs with them…if you had picture of the spiders eyes might help. https://www.arachne.org.au/01_cms/details.asp?ID=1703


You can post them each as a new post as many as you like. I will look out for them. I am not an expert but I will do the best I can to put a name on them.


Miturga lineata looks like a close call.
These would be a similar species to Pisarena genus nurseryweb spiders.
