Atrax robustus

Female specimen, and very defensive even by funnelweb standards.

      @Arachnophoric, nice one. A little older, and bigger, than the locally found A. robustus sling that I posted today.

      Nice! Looks like someone dealt me a misidentification and sold me a third one of these under the guise of H.Versuta lol
    • Dave1969
      @RezonantVoid, beautiful spider anyway. Are any of your H. versuta, H. versuta? They can be found side by side, nonetheless, devoid of male identifying characteristics the spinnerets can separate Atrax and Hadronyche found in the same locale

      @Dave1969 it's just the webbing is completely different. I've got 1 that is definitely Versuta, but now 3 Robustus

      @RezonantVoid, yes A. robustus generally has smoother web and H. versuta has triplines that radiate a bit more like the ones in your H. formidabalis photo today. H. versuta often contstructs dual entrances and the spinnerets look more conical than the rod like protuberances in the beauty above. It's good that you still have one.

      @Dave1969 also worth mentioning that Atrax sp. have a much flatter carapace when viewed from the side. Still would love to see both species in their natural habitat one day
