Pretty lady.

Lycosid- tasmanicosa spp. This wolf spider is living in our orchard and I just had to share those lovely legs.
I understand wolf patterns are so variable but this one has very similar patterns to our tasmanicosa leuckarti so it wouldn't surprise me if it's tasmanicosa sp.
 
Yeah, there are some big grey ones around here too (50mm DLS) with a more pronounced union jack pattern.
This one above would've been 35-40mm DLS
 
I must have been thinking of another species, L.Leuckarti don't have that strong black patch on the abdomen. These also grow very big, up to 90mm DLS on the super massive ones.
