Found my first pair of juvenile Southern Tree Dwelling Funnel-webs today in a tree that contained about a dozen visible webs up to 3 metres above ground (Southern Highlands NSW). Luckily the fires have stayed away.
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?
The beautiful dark chocolate girl in the process of being rehoused. Her burrow started within two minutes.
I think the abdomen patterning of Atrax sutherlandi makes them, perhaps, the most beautiful atracid.
