Hi, welcome to Spider ID. πŸ™‚ This is a Lynx Spider, looks like an Oxyopes sp.. I see Oxyopes gracilipes listed for New Zealand, it looks pretty close to images I’m seeing online for it as far as the abdominal pattern goes, but I’m not sure the carapace is a match so I’m only filing to genus.


your correct with the species its the only recorded oxyopes in nz an export from australia
