Arbanitis sp. gold
My precious species from Grafton, one of the last of their kind rescued from a job site 3 years ago
I've found a few similar to this with very golden carapace around SEQ are they found around here as far as you know or is it just a similar species?

The genus is incredibly spread out, but each species colonies aren't. You can find an entirely different cluster of species pretty much every hour north or south you drive up and down the East Coast. The unfortunate thing for these poor guys is their locality is surrounded by flood areas on one side, vast livestock paddocks on the other and human habitation in the dead centre. I'm amazed they held on long enough for me to find the last remaining cluster in a vacant block of land
