Wild exuviae Hadronyche cerberea
First day of the New year I went down to the Southern Highlands of NSW and checked out a new area. I found my first ever natural evidence of the Southern Tree Funnel-web (Hadronyche cerberea) - a few discarded burrows with some old web and this exuviae about 1.5 metres up a tree. Next time?
@BCspiderman7, unfortunately, fires were getting very close to the area only a few days ago. Hopefully they have missed this particular gully and some nearby areas that I have been told about. While ground burrowing spiders might stand a chance, the tree dwellers and the spiders that use fallen rotting logs could be decimated.
 
I hope the fires missed that gully too! I see every night now on the news how bad the fires are there in Australia. Sooo sad to see many, many, many animals killed.

Sends positive thoughts for rain, rain and more rain. Be safe!
